The Islamic Cultural Center was the first building erected as a mosque in New York City. It contains the two primary elements that traditionally compose an Islamic house of worship: a mosque and a minaret. Within the mosque, the mihrab, or alter niche, faces Mecca, dictating the mosque's 29 degree angle from the Manhattan street grid. This alignment creates a traditional exterior court for worshipers to gather before services.
