New York Masjid: Mosques of New Yorktook root on February 26, 1993 in the midst of an urban crisis: the World Trade Center bombing. But ultimately more destructive to the city at that time were the tidal waves of toxic and reductive one-line headlines that followed in the written and televised media: “Muslim Terrorist,” leaving a kind of easy, familiar code name for terror.

To counteract this stereotype, scholar Jerrilynn D. Dodds joined forces with photographer Edward Grazda to document the Islamic presence in New York by focusing on the places Muslims congregate to worship their god—the Mosque.

New York Masjid: Mosques of New Yorkis an insightful and unbiased account of a much-maligned and rapidly growing culture around the world, taken in perhaps the one place in the world where all manifestations of religious adherents live and work: New York City. The book features photographs, essays, and interviews documenting the mosques that New York’s Muslim communities have built at their center, revealing the ways these buildings reflect and create identities for Muslims within a dense and diverse urban fabric.

“… Mr. Grazda’s penetrating black-and-white photographs and Ms. Dodd’s insightful commentaries reveal the range of the city’s Islamic houses of worship and their ethnic congregations….”
