JULY 14: Video of the Landmark Commission Meeting is now posted . Please go here
UPDATE: Mayor ‘no term limits for me’ Bloomberg continues to twist and manipulate the Landmark Meeting…constantly changing the location and time….The FIX is in and it is an OUTRAGE. If you are in the area and you see this ALERT: BE THERE!!
Please get this out to your lists. Perhaps someone should wait at the last venue change and let folks know. They have moved the meeting place again. This is deliberate. The fewer people who witness this vile exhibition of cronyism, dhimmitude, and corruption, the better. Bloomberg is a snake.

Why is Mayor Bloomberg trying to expedite the building of the Ground Zero mega mosque, when according to a recent Quinnipiac poll, the majority of New Yorkers do not want it? The World Trade Center has not been rebuilt. It is still a large gaping horrible wound. The 911 Memorial Museum has not been built, although remains of the dead are still be found, and yet Bloomberg is ambivalent about all that….. but the mega mosque? That’s his priority.
One phone call from Bloomberg could table these hearings, giving much needed time for our landmarks legal team to work up our report. The only one who has accountability on this is Mayor Bloomberg. He controls the landmarks commission; they are all his appointees. None of them will go against him.
Make it your business to contact Bloomberg’s office today.
Bloomberg has an obligation to meet with the Coalition for the Preservation of Ground Zero to hear what the 911 families and the majority of New Yorkers feel passionately about.

Park Place Broadway landmark
45 Park Place (Ground Zero mosque site) and 311 Broadway
Look at the two buildings . The building above is 45 Park Place. The building on the left is 311 Broadway, and was granted landmark status in January 2010 by the Landmarks Preservation Commission on the grounds that there were very few Italian Renaissance, palazzo-style buildings left in the city. Yet both buildings are Italian Renaissance, palazzo-style architecture in the same neighborhood. Why is one being granted landmark status and the other being denied that status? A rhetorical question, of course.”
