Gov. Paterson plans to meet with the developers of a planned mosque at Ground Zero this week to discuss moving the project elsewhere in Manhattan, officials said Tuesday.
Paterson told Rep. Peter King (R-L.I.) his intention to meet with the developers of Park51 during a phone call Tuesday morning.
The governor last week floated the idea of giving state land to developers in order to move the project away from Ground Zero.
A Paterson spokesman confirmed the governor’s desire to meet with leaders behind the planned prayer space and community center two blocks north of Ground Zero.
