Islamic community center opening near ground zero

     NEW YORK (AP) - The organizers of an Islamic community center
and mosque near ground zero are opening a temporary space at the
site.
     The newly remodeled community space on the ground floor of the
building owned by Park51 is scheduled for a grand opening on
Wednesday. A photo exhibition will be the first public program.
     The rest of the Park Place building has yet to be renovated. The
developer has said it will be years before the project, envisioned
with a mosque, health club and theater, is fully realized.
     The photographs are of children from around the world now living
in New York.
     Park51 Chief of Staff Katerina Lucas says the exhibit will
hopefully show those opposed to the Islamic center what kind of
space it's meant to be.
