Losing Our Religion

A small church in Harlem shuttered after 54 years in the business of holiness last Tuesday, and developers are planning a 12-story, 75-unit apartment building. Greystone picked up the church site as part of an $11.5 million bankruptcy-auction buy of four parcels just east of Park Avenue between 125th and 126th Streets. Samuel's Temple Church of God in Christ did receive a $1M settlement, which should help its 200-member congregation find a new home for the holidays. The new development will be a mix of affordable and market-rate apartments; it's slated to be complete by mid-2016. It's also on the same block as the Corn Exchange revamp.
