Talking with my 2 year old godson about John Coltrane turned a good day into a great one.

At 90 Years, Harlem Church Vows to Endure Amid Relentless Change

alivesoul:

“The beauty of Harlem is being lost,” Dedrick L. Blue, the senior pastor of the church, said in an interview last week. “Pieces of its history are being destroyed by modern development and greed..

“The steeple represents certain things that must endure,” he said. “Faith must endure. History must endure. In a city where people see churches only as relics, this steeple says, ‘No, this is an act of faith.’ And it is an act of faith to stay here

This statement pretty much summarizes how I feel about Harlem and why I stay. I cannot lie and say I love Harlem as it currently is. I do not. It bothers how proud people are that Harlem is so gentrified. It bothers me to see tour buses of tourists visiting the churches for the choirs and leaving before the sermon. It bothers me that so many businesses treat me like an undesirable in a neighborhood I grew up in. I do however still love much about Harlem and I plan to enjoy that part for as long as I can. Or until they knock that part down and put up a coffee shop that charges $5 a cup in its place.
