Harlem Travel Guide – 67 Orange Street – iPhone, iPad, and iPod

Not your traditional cocktail fare

You won’t find the usual suspects—mojitos and cosmos—on the menu at 67 Orange, which is an upscale cocktail lounge that takes its name from the final address of the African American-owned Almack’s Dance Hall that flourished in the early 1800s in notorious Five Points. Instead, you will find $13 libations that combine luxury spirits from all ends of the globe with homemade liquor infusions of natural fruits, herbs, and spices. A must-try is Madame Almack—a cocktail made of Bak’s Bison Grass Vodka, fresh mint, Cynar Artichoke Aperitif, and champagne. The food menu is just as atypical, with light fare offerings such as orange-roasted duck leg with cinnamon mashed potatoes and a daily selection of market-fresh shellfish. Owner Karl Franz Williams, has outfitted the cozy vintage space with purple velvet curtains, distressed mirrors, filament light bulbs, and rotating fine art on the brick walls.

Cuisine: Eclectic Bar Food, Raw Bar

Menu

This is why the “Gold Coast” is sizzling–bier international is a neighborhood place to meet neighbors and catch up on the local news. Down the block, 5 & Diamond serves up delicious eats at reasonable prices.

Transportation: Bus—M2, M3, M7, M10, M116. Subway—B, C to 110th St.

Covo Trattoria Pizzeria and Lounge – Harlem Travel Guide – Sutro Media

Molto Bene or Rustic Tuscan Farmhouse

Owners Andrea and Arcenio Rosas continue their rustic Italian theme (Max Soha, & Max Caffe) with this trattoria and wine bar located in an old railroad station under the Henry Hudson Parkway. They kept the space’s original exposed beams, bricks, and cement floors, and made the space their own with cozy candlelight and antique bric-a-brac, and a wood-burning pizza oven.

Covo’s menu features crisp, thin-crust pizza with fig, gorgonzola and pancetta, hearty pasta dishes like pappardelle with lamb ragu, black ink fettuccine with crab and spaghetti carbonara.

Covo offers a prix-fixe brunch every Saturday and Sunday from 10am-2pm for $15.95, which includes a choice of orange juice, bellini, or mimosa and coffee, plus a main course selection from a menu of various egg dishes, grilled items, and griddle breads – all with an Italian twist.

After enjoying a meal downstairs, diners can retire upstairs to Covo Lounge, which sports an eclectic collection of sofas and chairs, to enjoy a classic cocktail or a simple glass of wine from an extensive list. The lounge features live jazz and half-price drinks and pizza every Thursday from 8:30pm-11:30pm. The lounge operates a Happy Hour on Wednesday from 5pm-8pm, when signature cocktails and wine by the glass are priced at $5, domestic and imported beer for $3, and half-price pizza.

Marcus Garvey Park – Harlem Travel Guide – iPhone, iPad, and iPod

Host to “The Black Woodstock” in the summer of 1969

Marcus Garvey Park, one of the oldest parks in New York City, is located between 120th and 124th Streets between Fifth and Madison Avenues, and is approximately 20 acres in size. In approximately 1835, the park’s land was acquired and the park opened in 1840. Originally named Mount Morris Park (for which the surrounding neighborhood’s historic district is named), in 1973 the park was renamed in honor of Marcus Garvey (1887–1940), who was a publisher, journalist, entrepreneur, and crusader for Black Nationalism and who, in 1919, established the Universal Negro Improvement Association. The park is home to the only surviving fire watchtower, which was designed by Julius Kroehl and erected in 1855-1857. It was declared a landmark in 1967 because of its unique post-and-lintel cast-iron construction, which provided the prototype framing for the modern-day skyscraper, and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976. The Watchtower serves as an important community landmark. In an effort to contain fires in NYC an elaborate reservoir system was constructed which included the Watchtower and the Croton Aqueduct. The park is also home to the Pelham Fritz Recreation Center, which contains a state-of-the-art physical fitness center, a 1,700-seat amphitheater (which was a gift from Broadway musical giant Richard Rodgers, who grew up across from the park in the early 1900s), and the Harlem Little League, which won the Mid-Atlantic Championship in 2002. The Amphitheater is the site for two popular annual events—the Charlie Parker Jazz Festival in late August and the two-day Dance Harlem Festival in September.

Facilities: Basketball courts, two dog runs, Olympic-size pool, playgrounds, recreation center that houses a fitness center containing cardiovascular equipment and a weight room, baseball field, barbecue area, African drumming circle, senior citizen program, computer resource center, and amphitheater where summer cultural events are staged.

Check out the unique brownstone at 4 West 123rd Street, which was “dressed up” by it owners in 1885 with an elaborate cast-iron fence and gate and a stamped, galvanized tin oriel window. Then stop by the Mount Morris Ascension Presbyterian Church and checkout one of the only three copper domes in New York.

Transportation: Bus—M1, M7, M60, M100, M101, M102, M104, BX15. Subway—A, B, C, D, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, Metro North to 125th St.

Harlem Walking Tour – Harlem Travel Guide – Sutro Media

Come and experience an authenic Walking Tour in Harlem

The Mount Morris Park Historic District was first designated by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission. Being one of the earliest landmarked districts in the 5 boroughs in Harlem, it covers a 16 block area in Central Harlem.

Going north from West 118th to West 124th Streets and West from Fifth Avenue to Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. Boulevard (7th Avenue) Mount Morris Park Historic District showcases a remarkable blend of late 19th and early 20th century residential and church architecture associated with the Gilded Age.

The well known “Doctors’ Row” commonly known as West 122nd Street, Mount Morris Park West, and Malcolm X Blvd. all demonstrate the remarkable survival of substantially unaltered 19th-century streetscapes, rare in most areas of Manhattan.

Once the walking tour comes to a close you will be treated to a lunch at a local Harlem restaurant.

Welcome to Harlem takes pride in showing off our beautiful city and sharing the history of the Mount Morris Park Historic District and all of the beautiful sights along the way!

Hamilton Grange – Harlem Travel Guide – Sutro World

Home of a Founding Father or National Treasure

West Harlem is the only community in the northeast that is home to two national memorials — Ulysses S. Grant National Memorial Park (see Riverside Park) and Alexander Hamilton’s Hamilton Grange. The Grange, which was named for Hamilton’s ancestral estate in Scotland, was his country home, designed by John McComb Jr., and originally sat on Hamilton’s 32-acre estate-the house was erected on what is now 143rd Street. Hamilton was one of our Founding Fathers and the first Secretary of the Treasury. The two-story Federal-style frame house was completed in 1802, just two years before his death in a duel with Aaron Burr, another Founding Father, and the nation’s third Vice President. The Grange was moved four blocks west to Convent Avenue in 1889. The original porches and other features were removed for the move. The staircase was removed and retrofitted to accommodate a makeshift entrance on the side of the house and the original grand Federal-style entrance was boarded up. To make room for the development of a row house community, the developer gave the Grange to St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, which in 1885 erected its landmark church at 141st Street and Convent Avenue after moving uptown from Greenwich Village. The Grange was wedged between the church and an apartment building which obscured its original beauty. It was purchased by the American Scenic and Historic Preservation Society in 1924, opened to the public nine years later, and donated to the U.S. Department of the Interior in 1962. In 1960 the property was designated a National Historic Landmark and in 1967 it was designated a New York City landmark. It was moved inside St. Nicholas Park (still inside the boundaries of Hamilton’s original estate) in 2008, which allows it to be returned to its former glory with the original porches, main entrance doorway, and main staircase. When it reopens some time in 2011, the public will again be allowed to enjoy guided tours inside the national landmark.

Checkout the statue of Alexander Hamilton in front of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church before going into The City College (CCNY) of the City University of New York. Here you will find the most beautiful Collegiate Gothic-designed buildings in New York City.

George Bruce Branch Library – Harlem Travel Guide – Sutro Media

Forty-fourth library to open in Manhattan

The library is a fitting tribute to George Bruce, a native of Edinburgh, Scotland who immigrated to the United States in 1795 at the age of 15. Active in fostering the growth of science and industry in New York City, Bruce was awarded the first design patent for his type fonts, earning him recognition as the “father and chief of typography in America” and career renown as one of the most successful type designers of the nineteenth century. An inventor and businessman, he also wisely invested in real estate in New York City, investments that would make his family one of the City’s wealthiest.

The first George Bruce Library was located at 262 West 42nd Street. When the building was sold in 1915, his daughter Catherine used the proceeds to fund the building of the current library at 518 West 125th Street in the Manhattanville section of Harlem. It opened January 1888 and was the third branch in the New York Free Circulating Library and the forty-fourth library to open in Manhattan. The New York Free Circulating Library had been established in 1878 to provide education and self-help for the poor and it was supported by such wealthy citizens as Andrew Carnegie, J.P. Morgan and Cornelius Vanderbilt.

The building was designed by Carrere & Hastings and is a prime example of Georgian Revival-style with its wonderful blend of brick and limestone. The striking ground floor entryway has an arched transom with gothic muntins and sidelights, flanked by historic copper lanterns with an ocular window above the entrance, a surround of bricks and a stone keystone. A stone frieze engraved with “NEW YORK PUBLIC LIBRARY” with a denticulated stone molding topped by a molded cornice is surmounted by a stone cornice topped by a brick-and-stone paneled parapet. This building was designated a New York City landmark in 2009 by the Landmarks Preservation Commission. Today the library has the reading hour, book groups, puppet shows, films, free internet and lectures for the community.

If you’ve worked up an appetite at the library satisfy those hunger pangs at Boca Chica Seafood Restaurant where their Dominican specialties from an extensive menu will delight you. Not in the mood for mostly seafood, stop in Jimbo’s Hamburger Palace, they have one of the best burgers in Harlem.

Amor Cubano Restaurant – Harlem Travel Guide – iPhone, iPad, and iPod

Upscale Latin Cuisine

Amor Cubano is the best place for an authentic night of Cuban entertainment and cuisine. Live music and dancing fill the front of the restaurant. In back, where the décor evokes the feeling of a Cuban backyard patio, complete with outdoor furniture and faux-laundry hanging on clotheslines, you can hold quiet conversations while dining on typical Cuban dishes. Locals flock here because the portions can easily serve two people and are superb. Favorites include garlicky lechon asado – roast pork with bitter orange mojo sauce; vaca frita – shredded bits of steak fried with onions and garlic; the hearty garbanzos fritos—chickpeas crisped with smoked ham and bacon; or the more contemporary Cubano frito—Cuba’s take on the hamburger, presented as two sliders made from ground beef, pork, and Spanish sausages.

In addition to the food, locals flock here for the music. On weekends, the talented house band, Ray y Su Son Sonete, belts out great son (Afro Cuban music), salsa, and rumba. On Thursdays the restaurant’s signature drink, mojito, in five different flavors, flows all night at the bar for $5. Every Tuesday trovadores (Cuban folksingers) are invited to perform starting at 7:30pm. Sunday brunch provides unlimited sangria in pineapple or red wine versions and bottomless mimosas.

Cuisine: Cuban

Features: Online Reservations, Online Ordering, Delivery

Looking for a quick, cheap meal? Head over to Pee Dee Steak House for steaks, barbecued ribs and chicken. Need to shop? You might find what you want at Danny K Fashions. There’s a large selection of brand name sneakers for men, women and children as well as T-shirts and jackets.

Transportation: Bus—M101, M102, M103. Subway—6 to 110th St.
