Harlem Travel Guide iPhone and iPad App

For years people have come to Harlem, primarily on tour buses.  They get off the bus to hear gospel music at a church, but usually leave before the worship service ends, and have a meal.

Harlem is the third most visited tourist destination in New York City.  Yet most visitors have no idea what there is to see or what to expect.  Unbeknownst to many visitors, Harlem has three distinct areas: Central Harlem, where African Americans first settled in the early 1990s; East Harlem or El Barrio, which is home to Latinos, with Puerto Ricans first migrating to the enclave after WWI; and West Harlem, which includes a diverse population of African Americans, West Indians, Latinos, and whites.  As a bonus we included Washington Heights’ home to Morris-Jumel Mansion, Manhattan’s oldest house.  We want people’s feet to hit the ground to explore Harlem’s rich history, which is unparalleled by any other New York City neighborhood.  Its ethnic diversity makes it a fascinating place to visit and this app will help visitors and residents alike navigate its nooks and crannies.
