Let me start by saying this clearly has no bearing on any of the pertinent questions. But it's come up a number of times. So I thought I'd flag it just for the sake of clarity. As you know, the proposed spot of the Cordoba House project is the one formerly occupied by a Burlington Coat Factory
location a couple blocks from the WTC complex. Wikipedia says
that they have locations in 45 states. But on a number of people who've written in seem to be thinking that this was a coat factory, as in a place that manufactures coats. It's not. Burlington Coat Factory is a chain of general interest department stores, mainly focused on clothing and shoes. Again, not that it sheds any real light on the current controversy. But just thought I'd note it.
