7. Masjid Malcolm Shabazz Mosque
(previously Mohammed Temple of Islam) 102 West 116th Street, southwest corner of the Boulevard
Formerly the Lenox Casino, this building was reborn as a mosque following the assassination of Malcolm X and became the center of Muslim life in Harlem. The 1965 renovation by Sabbath Brown introduced the traditional features of middle-eastern architecture such as arches and the aluminum dome, once topped by a golden crescent. photo of masjid malcolm shabazz mosque
