Faith Mission Baptist Church (Harlem)


Ramshackle brick, Faith Mission Baptist Church is on W. 117th Street in Harlem between Adam Clayton Powell and Malcom X Blvds. The white crucifix signage is ubiquitous markers for Baptist churches in the city. Bright things, they call attention to the presence of the sanctuary inside a building that would otherwise call no notice to itself.
