Greater Refuge Church

2081 Adam Clayton Powell Jr Blvd stands on the northwest corner of Adam Clayton Powell Jr Blvd and West 124th Street in New York City. It is a five-story modern building that serves as The Greater Refuge Temple church, a local African American congregation founded by Bishop Robert C. Lawson in 1919 under the original name of the Refuge Church of Christ that consists of more than 3500 believers today. The building has two façades facing the street: one characteristic main façade made in prefabricated concrete and covered with stucco facing the west decorated with four repetitive sets of six vibrant colors and a 45-foot high gold anodized aluminum cross anchored on the right; another facade facing the southwest covered in monochromatic stucco. The base is covered with diorite. The only entrance is on the center of the main façade with nine solar-tempered glass doors, covered with a concrete canopy extending from the front of the building to the edge of the curb.
