I was expecting a hole in the wall museum with a few pieces from the Harlem Renaissance, but this museum was much more than that. Though each floor was fairly small, it was about 3 stories of a variety of paintings and sculptures. I enjoyed...More

Small art museum that highlights the culture, history, and struggles of African-Americans. Loved the beautiful paintings and black-and-white photographs. Free admission every Sunday.

It's FREE on Sunday, thanks to Target store! Just saw the Black Cowboy exhibit. It alone was worth the trip.

I loved the Alma Thomas show. This museum is just the right size if you want to see incredible art without being overwhelmed. The gift shop is a must-stop if you want great gifts for yourself or friends.

This museum is a little gem to be found in the heart of Harlem. They have changing exhibitions and a (rather small) permanent collection. It's small but well-selected. A great advantage of this museum is that it is not crowded like many other NYC art...More

played a vital role in the history of New York City.
Today, the neighbourhood is as vibrant as ever as new
businesses and developments go up next to local
institutions. The heart of the neighbourhood is
bustling 125th Street, where street vendors and
historic landmarks like the Apollo Theater mingle with
big-name stores. Turn down almost any corner, and
