  1. The sunlight is quite strong in Google Maps. However, details of construction on a 17-story are clear. Well and nothing stresses. (Hello New York YIMBY)

  2. How is the building on the site utilized and what was its original usage?

    • It was originally a synagogue- like many houses of worship on the Concourse. In the same way the Concourse used to be upper middle and middle class. Now almost all those vestiges of its history are erased as The Bronx is just as it has been since the 70’s where the city decided to put all the people the rest of the boroughs don’t want. That’s not to say elderly don’t need affordable housing. My point is the city concentrates lower income people in The Bronx. In the 50’s it was a place people escaped Manhattan poverty from to live a middle class – modern lifestyle. Now it’s just a place they try to force low income housing.

    • I heard that money was being stolen from church funds. So they lost the building. So now it will become a senior citizen building. Why could not church not remain as part of the new building. So many churches are still keeping a place of worship in the new building. Something did not go right here.

  3. I am a twenty five year resident of the community and the prior comments are reflective of a bias against working class Bronxites.

    The current facility is a Baptist Church that has been a staple in the community for years. Unfortunately due to changing demographics of the neighborhood including an inflex of Dominicans, who are primarily Catholic, the Church needs to move.

    • I grew up with working class Bronxites. That area is my old stomping grounds (when it had already become lower income). My family are immigrants. We are minorities. Most ppl did not want to stay. Reality is that concentrating low income people in one place is not healthy. Nor is it fair.

  4. It was Tremont Temple, until the mid-70’s (congregation merged with a Scarsdale Temple). Then it became a black Baptist church. I’m very happy to hear that new housing will be built. The mid-Concourse, which is revitalizing nicely, still needs more density and newer housing. This is a step in the right direction.

  5. Something is wrong with this picture. Why did the church not remain in the new building? I have heard money was stolen from church funds. So they lost the church.

  6. Another building will Be Going up on the corner. Of Burnside. On the same block.
