YONKERS, N.Y. -- Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano, who upheld the city's decision to declare landmark status for a mansion planned to be used as a mosque, said the designation means exterior alterations now have to be approved by the city, according to lohud.com.

Spano said he found no cause to veto the City Council's approval of the Landmark Preservation Board decision to declare 20 Grandview Blvd. a landmark. The mansion, one of the first houses in the area, was bought last year by the Islamic Community Center of Mid-Westchester, lohud.com reports.

Spano said the landmark status only affects any exterior changesĀ and does not prevent it from being used as a place of worship, lohud.com says.
