South Harlem Case Study: 225 Lenox Avenue

For Studio I, I studied the history and significance of 225 Lenox Avenue on the northwest corner of Lenox and West 121st street in South Harlem, New York. The most significant factor about the history of 225 Lenox Avenue is that though it has always acted as a religious building, it has changed in terms of its congregation over time, and the changes in occupancy have always reflected the demographic and cultural changes in the South Harlem neighborhood. Throughout each of its phases in South Harlem’s history, the cultural shifts have also manifested in the congregation’s physical expression on the building itself.
