Developers should look in Harlem, says Butts.

The Reverend Calvin Butts told members of the honorary land use economics society, Lambda Alpha International, that on the island of Manhattan, there are several blocks north of 110th Street that deserve the attention of developers. "I pray for the developers," he said, "and that Harlem will be opened up."

Speaking at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel on Central Park South, the Reverend acknowledged the role of the Central Park Conservancy which is working to enhance the northern sections of the park, where he walks frequently with his wife. He recalled a stroll they took through the park while waiting for the last Rodney King verdict when their minds were on Los Angeles and Hollywood. "It doesn't have the lake or the park or the skyline after dark," he intoned.

But once you hit Central Park North, he observed, "there isn't that free flowing nature."

Rev. Butts said Harlem can become the bedroom community for Southern Manhattan. "This is the season of the death angel," he prayed. "I want the Phoenix to rise over the abandoned buildings."
