12. Mount Olivet Baptist Church
201-203 Malcolm X Boulevard on the northwest corner with West 120th Street - Designated New York City Historic Landmark
Typical of how both residents and churches moved around Manhattan, Mount Olivet Baptist Church and its congregation were originally located in the Rockefeller Center area. The church is housed today in the former Temple Israel of Harlem, one of the City's most noted synagogues of the early 20th-century German Jewish Community. This structure was built in the Neo-Roman Style as designed by Arnold W. Brunner in 1906-07. Brunner studied at the École des Beaux Arts in Paris and was at the forefront of the design of grand Classical Revival synagogues. The current congregation is to be commended for maintaining the building in such exemplary condition since they acquired it in 1925. photo of mount olivet church
