A cultural epicenter of the Big Apple, Central Harlem is an enclave created by and for Black Americans. If you want to feel the cracking energy of this dynamic district – which has evolved over the years into a colorful collection of fantastic restaurants, architectural gems, and 24/7 entertainment – hop on a video call with a native New Yorker!
You’ll explore the vibrant streets of Central Harlem, and stroll past places like the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture and Harlem Hospital, where Martin Luther King. Jr. was saved after an attack. See historic Harlem brownstones, converted into funeral parlors, churches, bistros, and jazz clubs, and the 200-year-old Abyssinian Baptist Church.
When you eventually reach the Apollo Theater, where the careers of icons like Ella Fitzgerald and Stevie Wonder were launched, you’ll understand how special Harlem is to its community.
