Park51 (originally named Cordoba House) was a planned 13-story Islamic community center in Lower Manhattan. The majority of the center was set aside for the general public to promote interfaith dialogue. Plans for the center included a Muslim prayer space which, due to its location two blocks from the World Trade Center site, has controversially been referred to as the "Ground Zero mosque", though numerous commentators disputed that characterization.
