As a native New Yorker, I’ve lived in all five Boroughs of NYC, however, my birthplace was Harlem, USA. Thus, I will show you the place that is dear to my heart – the village of Harlem.
This unique soulful walking experience will take place in one of four sections of Harlem - Central Harlem. This section was the Heart and Soul of the Harlem Renaissance and the Civil Rights movement in America.
Our journey will begin with a birds-eye view of 125th Street looking westward – this will give us a photographic preview of some of the locations we will visit. We will then walk to the former homes of the Harlem Renaissance central figures, Langston Hughes, Zora Hurston, James w. Johnson, etc. On this 10,000-step journey, we will pass several Harlem murals that capsulize Harlem’s glorious past. We will also see where Marin Luther King spoke, suffered a near-death experience, and was hospitalized. Two places of special interest will be explored – the Harlem Jazz Museum and the Schomburg Library for African studies. At the Schomburg, we will see a mosaic cosmogram, which contains the ashes of Langston Hughes underneath it.
To round out our experience, we will walk upon Harlem’s “Walk of Fame;” see monuments of Civil Rights trailblazer and the famous Sylvia’s Restaurant, named after the “Queen of Soul Food” Sylvia Woods.
I’m looking forward to meeting you and your guests.

This Harlem tour isn't just about sites and locations, but the history associated with Harlem - its rise, fall, and future, and how Harlem has shaped world history.
I will safely guide you along Harlem's board Boulevards and majestic Avenues. Finally, I'm a professional photographer - this tour offers plenty of photo-ops.

This tour exceeded all of my expectations. I learned so much about the importance of Harlem to not only New York City history, but to American history as well. Larry is an amazing tour guide and is incredibly responsive to questions. I loved the jazz museum and I was moved by the exhibits in the Schomberg Center for Research in Black History. I came away with a deeper appreciation for Harlem and for Black history. I give this tour my highest recommendation!

I live beside West Harlem but never had the chance to explore it. This trip is a fantastic experience! I had a lot of fun listening to the history of Harlem and learned a lot from Larry. He is very kind, knowledgeable, and considerate. PS. For those who love Jazz music, this is a trip you cannot miss!
