Harlem Stage Gatehouse – Harlem Travel Guide – iPhone, iPad, iPod

In celebration of artists of color

In October 2006, Aaron Davis Hall moved into its new home in the Gatehouse and became known as Harlem Stage. This breathtaking structure, designed by Frederick S. Cook in a Romanesque Revival style, was part of the Croton Aqueduct water system. In 1981, this extraordinary structure was designated a landmark and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Harlem Stage is recognized for its creation and development of new works by performing artists of color. Programs include: Waterworks, which supports the creation of significant new works and provides a forum for dialogue between artists and audiences; Harlem Stage on Screen, which supports the works of independent film makers; Harlem Stride, which offers a laboratory for musicians to explore historic and new trends in music, develop collaborative projects, participate in humanities activities with audiences, and present unique and exceptional music programs; E-Moves, an annual program where emerging choreographers showcase their work, which ranges from modern dance to contemporary ballet, hip-hop, and dance theater; SundayWorks, which is a free reading series for artists to present new works; Harlem Stage Partners Program, which supports co-presentations with significant artists and organizations; and Fund for New Work, which provides direct support to emerging artists through commissions, subsidized rehearsal space, and/or workshop presentations.

St. Nicholas Park – Harlem Travel Guide – Sutro World

There’s year round activity here

St. Nicholas Park is located at the intersection of two Harlem neighborhoods – Hamilton Heights and Manhattanville. The nearly 23-acre park is situated between 128th and 141st Streets and St. Nicholas Avenue and St. Nicholas Terrace. Some of the land for the park was acquired upon the condemnation of the Croton Aqueduct in 1895, and the additional property was assembled between 1900 and 1909, which included the area at 128th Street known as “The Point of Rocks,” where General George Washington had positioned himself during the Battle of Harlem Heights in 1776. The name of the park is taken from adjacent streets St. Nicholas Terrace to the west and St. Nicholas Avenue to the east. These streets honor New Amsterdam patron saint St. Nicholas of Myra, whose likeness adorned the masthead of the New Netherland ship that brought the first Dutch settlers to New Amsterdam, and who is the inspiration for Father Christmas or Santa Claus. Landscape architect and Parks Commissioner Samuel Parsons designed the park himself. The park was built on a rugged mass of Manhattan schist following the steep and irregular topography of northern Manhattan. The imposing and Gothic-inspired City College of New York campus overlooks the park. Hamilton Grange, the summer home of our first Secretary of the Treasury and one of the nation’s Founding Fathers, Alexander Hamilton, was moved from nearby Convent Avenue into the park in 2008.

Facilities: Basketball courts, dog runs, playgrounds, barbecue area, and handball courts.

Now step inside the City College of New York, the “Poor man’s Harvard” campus and marvel at some of New York City’s beautiful Gothic-designed buildings. Then head on down to Harlem Stage Gatehouse for an intimate performing space in the landmarked Croton Aqueduct water system.

Transportation: Bus—M3, M4, M7, M11, M116. Subway—A, B, C, D to 110th, 116th, 125th, 135th, and 145th Sts.
