Across the road, opponents of the Sheepshead Bay mosque turned out to protest against it for the second Sunday running. Last week the Brooklyn Tea Party was behind the demonstration, this week (see placard below) it was a group calling themselves Bay People Inc., who had organised a previous rally back in June.
