From the Harlem Renaissance to Red Rooster
Named Neiw Haarlem by the Dutch, and later the home of German, Irish, Italian, Polish, and Hungarian immigrants, Harlem didn't come into its own until the 1920's, when it became the nation's premiere African-American neighborhood. After years of neglect and turmoil, Harlem is now experiencing what some call a second Harlem Renaissance. Join me as we explore both Harlem's legendary past and its changing present.
On this tour we will see:
-Alexander Hamilton's House
-The Schoemberg Center
-The Studio Museum of Harlem
-Bill Clinton's Office Building
-Marcus Garvey Park
And much, much more!

We really enjoyed our walking tour of Harlem with Russell. He is accommodating, professional and very knowledgeable. He was always willing to answer our questions. He made the tour interesting for everybody (2 adults and 2 children - 10 and 14). His personal experience brought the city and Harlem to life. We would highly recommend Russell to anyone who would be looking for tours.
