Lower Harlem, Including Morningside Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Langston Hughes wrote: “I was in love with Harlem long before I got there, and I am still in love with it.” Indeed, there is much to love—to see, to hear, to admire—in this epicenter of the African American experience.Through the years, Harlem has been in the spotlight for many reasons—some positive (the Harlem Renaissance, ethnic arts and culture, beautiful architecture), others less so (poverty, crime, blight). Happily, the neighborhood has seen a huge resurgence over the past two decades.

The area most people consider Harlem (originally Haarlem, as rendered in Dutch) covers a large swath of northern Manhattan. This tour combines the 110th Street corridor and Morningside Park, a narrow strip of land that is one of the best-improved public parks in Manhattan."
