    Assuming you mean Park 51, it wasn't a mosque, it was a muslim community center similar to a YMCA or a YMHA. The location, 51 Park Place, is a commercial street with the usual mix of businesses. The second link below shows the location in Google Maps and you can see the stuff in the neighborhood.

    I think there was a strip club which for some (not hard to guess) reason doesn't show up in Google. Downtown NYC is very densely built up, and nobody who lives in NY would think that Park Place was "right next to the WTC".

    Park 51 is actually pretty far away. There's just usual businesses there (including some second floor strip clubs).
