UPDATE: THE COMMUNITY BOARD HAS INFORMED US THAT THE STATEMENT IS NOT READY FOR MARCH 4TH BUT ENCOURAGES CONCERNED CITIZENS TO PARTICIPATE IN THE GENERAL BOARD MEETING ON THAT DATE.  The executive committee of Community Board 10 of Central Harlem is now prepared to make a statement against one homophobic church on Lenox Avenue that has been receiving media attention over the years because of vitriolic hate speech posted out front for all to see.  This meeting is set for Wednesday, February 25th, March 4th, 6:00PM at 163 West 125th Street on the 2nd Floor Art gallery.  All who feel that this is an important topic should show up for support since this will be a controversial issue to address.  For those who might have forgotten, Harlem has always had a diverse historic past since the Renaissance years and the LGBT community has never really left uptown: LINK

  1. A tip came in which has 2 important points that CB10 can use to have the sign remove. Since the building is in the Historic District, all new architectural structures visible to the public must be approved by the Landmarks Preservation Commission and the community board. This apparently was never the case.

    The second point is that any signage that is not in line with the landmark block can be removed if it does not reflect the historic nature of the community. Equinox in the West Village had to dismantle some vary large signage with naked bodies not too long ago because it did not go along with the landmark community.
