They bought the Tour Online and were prepared to immerse themselves in the
Beatiful Gospel music of the Black Church.So,unfortunate,it was the...More
This was a highlight of our visit in New York.
I went with my son early in the morning (8 am) on Sunday by taxi to the mass.
We were welcomed in a warm and endearlng way and we felt part of the community.
well, we wanted to attend a gospel mass, and to feel the love and joy together with a form of spirituality that is not common to European churches. Big deception with this one. First visitors (numerous) are parked away, so there is no possibility to...More

It is a lovely building, with art deco details and chandeliers. This was the interesting part. The welcome was warm and the moving of guests was friendly and fast. However, this music is not good old fashionned gospel. It is singing. That was a disappointment.
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 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
you’ll discover some of the most beautiful blocks in the city, filled with handsome brownstones, soul food restaurants, corner shops, and scenic parks. For a taste of a real New York neighbourhood, it’s hard to top a visit to Harlem.
