25 Beautiful Mosques Worldwide

Islamic Cultural Center of New York

Year Built: 1991

Location: New York, NY

This mosque on the upper east side of Manhattan was a collaborative effort from many patrons to create a space that represents American Islam. Its facade connects itself to the Persian architectural tradition through its use of brick and blue tile, yet its thoroughly modern design plants it in the architectural scheme of New York City.
