It's Sunday again, "Church Day" here at "Newark USA". Today's foto is of the New Life Family Bible Church and its Child Care Learning Center on Chancellor Avenue in the Weequahic section.
"New Life" is what the many churches in Newark have brought to areas once at risk. Churches have stabilized neighborhoods and sponsored housing. As you travel around Newark, you may note that the places with new housing seem to be interspersed, every block or two, with little churches. Here and there you may also spot a masjid but, altho Newark has many Moslems, their houses of worship tend not to draw attention to themselves but are tucked quietly into their setting. I have noted only two in my travels, one on South Orange Avenue near the Bergen Street Pathmark, and one on Chancellor Avenue. I guess when I show pictures of those, it should be on a Friday rather than Sunday, since that is the main gathering day for Moslem worship.
