Pleasant City, the oldest African American community in West Palm Beach, is a 27 block area that had a population close to 2800 residents. It is bordered on the north by 23rd Street, on the north by 15th Street, on the east by Dixie Highway and on the west by the Florida East Coast Railway, which made it a stronger business area.
Once the hub of Black Business and beautiful single-family homes, the area has been on the decline for several years[when?] because of hurricane damage, poorly managed public housing and politics.
New Song Church will be directly ministering to this community with the intent of reconciling relationship across the physical and spiritual board to the end that the Gospel of Jesus Christ might reign over the hearts of this beautiful place.
