ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York Gov. David Paterson says no meeting to discuss relocating has been scheduled with developers of a planned Islamic cultural center and mosque near ground zero.
Paterson told WNYC Radio's "The Take Away" on Friday that he's still seeking a meeting, but the discussion he'd hoped to have this week won't happen.
Paterson had said this week that he had hoped to meet with developers in a couple of days to talk about the concerns of those still hurt and angry over the Sept. 11 attacks.
He says the group postponed a Monday meeting because its imam leader was traveling.
Paterson has also offered to provide state assistance for any relocation.
