Harlem - New York City

Video provided by www.NYCGO.com.

Above Central Park is the area known as Harlem, an area rich in African American History. Harlem has gone through a revitalization in the last 10 years. Former President Bill Clinton brought some attention to the area when he opened his offices here. Visit the Museo del Barrio, a museum that focuses on Latin American Art. The famous Apollo Theater is host to many famous entertainers. Visit the St. Nicholas Historical District and New York's oldest Black Church Abyssinian Baptist. Also worth a look - the Studio Museum.

To the west is Columbia University, one the best and oldest universities in the country. Also, Grant's Tomb can be found at W. 122nd and Riverside Drive. See the Harlem Wikipedia Website.
