Walked down to the financial district on Saturday. People were protesting the building of a mosque at ground zero.
Others were protesting the protesters.

This is the proposed site of the Cordoba house, a Muslim community center which has plans to contain a mosque. It is located at 45 Park Place, two and a half blocks north of ground zero, 686 feet from an pre-existing mosque.
The street was blocked from entry at both sides of the block.
