We had a great time getting to know some of Harlem! Our guide, a life-time resident, knew the history of this beautiful neighborhood from the inside out. We learned a lot, enjoyed the beautiful architecture, and ended at our next destination, the Harlem Jazz Museum.

We spent two hours listening to a great set. The Church was bright and airy and the quality of music fabulous. Great vibe and something a little different from the norm in NYC.

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
