Synopsis: New York Masjid: Mosques of New York took 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 York is 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....”
—The New York Times
About the Author: Born in New York City, Edward Grazda studied photography at the Rhode Island School Of Design. In the 70s, he photographed Latin America, and in the 80s he concentrated on Asia. In addition to teaching at Harvard, Grazda has lectured at Yale and Bennington. Grazda's photographs are in the collecitons of The Museum Of Modern Art, The Metropolitan Museum Of Art, and the New York Public Library, all in New York City, as well as The Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington D.C., and The San Francisco Museum Of Modern Art. He was awarded grants by the National Endowment for the ARts in 1980 and 1986. Author of Afghanistan Diary: 1992-2000 (powerHouse Books, 2000) and Afghanistan: 1980-1989 (Der Alltag, 1990), Grazda lives in New York City. Jerrilynn D. Dodds is Professor of Architecture and Theory at the School of Architecture of The City College of New York at CUNY.

She is the author of Architecture and Ideology Of Early Medieval Spain (London and University Park, 1991); Al Andalus: The Arts Of Islamic Spain (The Metropolitan Museum Of Art, 1992); and numerous other publications on the subject of Islam and cultural exchange as it is seen through architecture. A filmmaker as well as author, Professor Dodds has been writing and filming works concerning the dilemma of Muslims in contemporary society ("NY Masjid: The Mosques Of New York," and "Stari Most: The Bridge at Mostar [Bosnia]"). Among the other institutions at which Professor Dodds has taught are Harvard University and Columbia University.
