Tour Description

  • Wednesday
    Duration: 4 HOURS.

    Harlem was founded in the second half of 1600 as a Dutch farming community. The settlement grew enormously during the first great wave of migration at the turn of the 19th Century. Between 1880 and 1920 large numbers of immigrants, especially Italians and Jews Russian arrived at Ellis Island and settled in New York. We have to remember two dates for the development of Harlem: 1863, when President Abraham Lincoln abolished slavery with an executive order and the financial crisis of 1904. Afro-American, real estate entrepreneur, Philip Peyton purchased through his Afro-American Realty Co. a row of tenements on 133rd. Street renting –against prejudice- to the newly emancipated black population. It was an enormous success, by 1913 there were over 60,000 African-American living in Harlem and more were coming to create the spiritual home of black America. The narration will go through Prohibition years, the Harlem Renaissance, the degradation of the 70s, the recent recovery in the 90s. This afternoon tour will take you to explore the historic district of Sugar Hill, Convent Avenue, Hamilton Grange, and Sylvan Terrace. We will see the Apollo Theatre, Hotel Theresa on 125th. Street and President Bill Clinton’s office. We will then go to a Baptist Church to attend a true Gospel Mass.
