On May 5, 2001, Newsday reported that "researchers from Columbia University have given the first peek at two years of exhaustive research in which graduate students walked New York City block by block to document the Muslim community's rapid growth. The conference followed the release a week earlier of a separate national study of Muslims that also found rapid growth and a great deal of ethnic diversity in mosques. For some, the real news from the two studies is that Muslims are being studied at all."
