I had a secret.....from everyone, did you?
On Andrew Ave across from PS26 was a private house with a cross and a Star of David
on the porch...I knocked on the door out of curiosity ...I was invited in...a congregation of Penecostal followers singing.....tamborines....piano....loud...up and down in their seats...I was mesmerized ...I went back a few times until they asked me to be baptized in the basement. They were super friendly and at the time the only black neighbors I knew...
