Day 128

Love Gospel Assembly

May 6th, 2012

This church, whose community outreach programs included a soup kitchen that fed up to 10,000 people per month, was gutted by a fire in 2010. The flames incinerated part of the verse from Micah (which read "The Lord's voice crieth unto the city") that covered the frieze, revealing the words "Concourse Center". Like many churches in the Bronx, this one was once a synagogue: the Concourse Center of Israel.

    It’s so sad to see this beautiful building now covered in smoke and ash. I’m hoping someone will save it and give it the love it deserves…since it’s loved so many people over the years…
