A great opportunity to see the Amateur night live. We were in town during Spring Break and booked tickets to see the show. It was entertaining for me and my teenager. A great opportunity to see the show live and in person!

This theatre may be a bit of a distance from other landmarks you're seeing while your'e in the city, but it is well worth the trek. There are tours and shows available. A very cool place.

As a hub of African American culture, Harlem has
played a vital role in the history of New York City.
Today, the neighbourhood is as vibrant as ever as new
businesses and developments go up next to local
institutions. The heart of the neighbourhood is
bustling 125th Street, where street vendors and
historic landmarks like the Apollo Theater mingle with
big-name stores. Turn down almost any corner, and
