Midtown Manhattan is the heart of the city of New York. There is a large community of Muslims working in the surrounding area. In the year of 1990, some of the community members realized that we needed a place to perform Salatul-Jummah. For this purpose, they arranged a small place at 80th Madison Ave and prayed in that area. After a couple of years the place was evacuated by the landlord, so they arranged a new place in a hotel.
