Historic Harlem, from the 1600s thru the 1920's and Beyond
Join Deb Zelcer for a very picturesque prowl through historic Harlem, once a bucolic estate setting for gracious mansions, later a hub for European immigrants, and then the destination of southern Blacks fleeing Jim Crow and migrating to the North in pursuit of jobs and rights. Together we'll visit settings associated with all of these phases of Harlem's history, while concentrating on the emergence of the Harlem Renaissance. We will 'walk' past Sylvan Terrace, the Morris-Jumel mansion, the Triple Nickel, Trinity Church Cemetery, Hamilton Grange, Hamilton Heights, the historic City College campus, Strivers Row, and the Abyssinian Baptist Church, and see sites where well-known Harlem residents lived. We'll end this enlightening tour at a special pavilion to view historic WPA era murals depicting the lives of Harlem's Black residents. Led by Deb Zelcer, Prowler Tours
