SHEEPSHEAD BAY - Residents of Sheepshead Bay who oppose a mosque in their community are turning to the Internet to stop the place of worship from being built.

One resident, Greg Kalman, has designed a website to raise money for efforts to help stop its construction.

Kalman says he has nothing against Muslims, but that the mosque would create major traffic problems in the area.

Proponents of the mosque have started their own website and petition. They say nearly all the people attending services would be walking or using the train.
