Review Excerpts Of The Rare 1930 Census Of Harlem Churches By The Journey Through NYC Religions

A Journey through NYC Religions is making available excerpts of a hard to get report on the 1930 census of Harlem churches done by the Greater New York Federation of Churches. During the 1930s, Harlem was the greatest Protestant center in New York City. “This has come to pass within a period of thirty years, the greatest growth taking place since the war,” wrote author of the study, George H. Hobart. “These churches have contributed a remarkable service to the honor and glory of God, and to human welfare.”
