King Chapel Assembly, East Harlem, NYC

Located on the northeast corner of Third Avenue and 127th Street is this religious building. It was built c. 1971-75 by Queens-based architect Millard Bresin, who designed several restaurants and a theater on St. Marks Place.  Bresin was also responsible for another church just a few blocks away from this one at Lenox Avenue and 127th Street (now closed). Both sites have strong similarities include corner entrances (the one here is hidden behind roll-down gates) and brick facades with flat arches flanking the entrance.
