Event description

Description

Upper Manhattan has a rich cultural patrimony that is little explored by visitors to New York City. As a long-time resident in the areas explored on this tour, as well as a licensed sightseeing guide and art historian, I will help you create unique memories that will profoundly enhance your visitor experience in this city.

We begin our expedition in Central Harlem, which is the cultural capital for people of African descent. First we will explore a local library with a global reputation and with exquisite exhibits that showcase the rich history of Black Americans. Soon after we will commence our walk and see how the public art in the neighborhood reflects on the unique experience of this particular group of New Yorkers. On the second half of the experience we'll explore Washington Heights, a neighborhood that is home to a sizable Latin demographic. While in the area we will see the oldest mansion in Manhattan, murals that are sure to inspire, and more. We will finish with a taste of delicious Spanish comfort foods in a typical Dominican restaurant.
