I pass by it every time I go into Manhattan but this time, I got off the train.
The history. The people. The culture. The faith. The color. Seriously, the color.
You truly never know a part of the city until you walk it.
You smell the smells, see those living there and hear some of the stories. Most notably the Lenox Lounge, a bar that opened in 1939 and was home to Billie Holiday, Miles Davis and other jazz legends. People stop, stare and talk.
A rarity in the fast paced city.
Take the tour with me. Welcome to Harlem.
Harlem, thank you.
