The Upper East Side holds a string of topnotch museums on Fifth Avenue between 82nd and 110th streets. IMO, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1000 Fifth Ave., is the jewel in the crown. But it all depends on the interests of visitors. For example, on...More

As a hub of African American culture, Harlem has
played a vital role in the history of New York City.
Today, the neighbourhood is as vibrant as ever as new
