My uncles apartment is on Gold Street just steps away from where the new Beekman Tower is going up ... when I was younger (and stronger) I would walk from there to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. My friends and I used to walk from Christopher Street in Greenwich Village to the Upper East Side all the time.

It's not impossible, but it's not exactly an easy walk, either. That's almost four miles on foot.

Maybe this isn`t the right place to ask but I read that they want to build a mosque on Ground Zero with 15 fl. I cant believe that they would do that and were will it be build? I see no location were such building could stand.

Yeah I mentioned about that on this thread a while ago too. I think they didn't notice or forgot about it. Can anyone please inform any construction workers on that site about that?
