☞ REMEMBER: Metropolitan Baptist circa 1890

An old photo of today's Metropolitan Baptist Church at 128th Street shows the building on the corner of ACP/7th Avenue before it was finished back in 1890.  The house of worship with the substantial semi-conical roof was originally the New York Presbyterian Church when the archival photo was taken and the lower photo shows the building today with the notable additions added on to the avenue side.

  1. This church has a lot of history and was one of the most highly regarded in Harlem in its day.
