Harlem

Making the Most of Your Time

One enduring, simple pleasure in Harlem is its terrific architecture: take a little time to walk the areas around Strivers' Row, Hamilton Heights, and 116th Street to see some impressive and often fanciful brownstones. While you're at it, visit the Studio Museum in Harlem, which showcases contemporary works of Harlem's artist community (note that the museum is open only Thurs.-Sun.), or the Morris-Jumel Mansion, for a trip back to colonial New York.
