The storefront churches.....


East New York is just one of the most economically deprived sections of Brooklyn and, along with Mattress-Sty, Brownsville, and Bushwick, just one of the most risky. Staying surrounded by numerous up and coming neighborhoods, including Williamsburg and Boreum Hill, the decrease and decay show up a lot more brutal, a drag on the human spirit, until finally you walk previous just one of the storefront churches along Atlantic Avenue on a Sunday morning and listen to the gospel music wanting to burst out of people deteriorating doors.
