PARK SLOPE - Jewish leaders from Brooklyn gathered today to show support for a planned mosque near Ground Zero.
The mosque and community center would be located two blocks from the site of the Sept. 11 attacks. Early plans call for a 13-story, $100-million Islamic center, of which the mosque would be a part.
The Landmarks Preservation Commission said in a 9-0 vote Tuesday that the 152-year-old building where the mosque is expected to be built isn't distinctive enough to qualify as a landmark, paving the way for the project.
