Historic Harlem, from the 1700s through the 1920's and Beyond: This tour begins at Sylvan/Jumel Terrace and ends at Harlem Hospital. Join us for a very picturesque stroll through historic Harlem, once a bucolic estate setting for gracious mansions, later a hub for European immigrants, and then the destination of southern Blacks migrating to the North in pursuit of jobs and rights. We will visit settings associated with all phases of Harlem's history, while concentrating on the emergence of the Harlem Renaissance, that wonderful period of Harlem history when the creativity of Black writers, musicians and performers became a sought after and much admired influence on American and world culture.Fee includes Tour and bus. Lunch at Sylvias on your own.
