So much to see.
Here the train tracks run down Broadway and makes cool reflections.

On the front of the Jewish Theological Seminary there is a sculpture presumably referring to Abraham and Isaac in the Bible.
However, one wishes our particular (political) Bush had been consumed - or at least would stop blighting our lives.

Elegant brownstones seen against the backdrop of City College.
The 'poor man's Harvard'.

The huge and glamorous "Theresa Hotel" where Castro and all sorts of other famous people stayed including Louis Armstrong, Sugar Ray Robinson, Lena Horne, Josephine Baker, Dorothy Dandridge, Duke Ellington, Muhammad Ali, Dinah Washington, Ray Charles, Little Richard, and Jimi Hendrix.
Now, sadly, office space.

Lots and lots of chuches in Harlem.
This one with interesting windows.


  1. Fascinating - often read about, but had no idea what Harlem looked like.

  2. I love the buildings in Harlem. Many of them are old and elegant.


  3. I find it fascinating that all those celebrities stayed in the hotel. If the walls could speak, we have some really good stories. ;-)


  4. The Bush pun gave me a little chuckle! ;)
    It is a fabulous sculpture.

  5. Just a note that the Jewish Theological Seminary references Moses and the burning bush, not Isaac and Abraham.


I look forward to hearing from you!
