Although Josh Pais has done a masterful job of telling his personal view of 7th Street, he has missed including an important influence on East 7th Street from the late '80s to the present, notably Graffiti East 7th Baptist Ministry which has been a strong influence on the block between Avenues B and C for 25 years. Started in a rundown storefront near the corner of Avenue B, it has recently renovated the old synagogue in the center of the block and under the direction on Rev. Taylor Field has served the spiritual needs of the community as well as raised the awareness of diversity and brotherhood. At any rate, bravo for a beautiful portrait of a unique street--as far as it went.
