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.

Transportation: Bus—M11, M60, M100, M101, M104, BX15. Subway—1 to 125th St.

Central Park – Harlem Travel Guide – iPhone, iPad, and iPod

The most visited urban park in the U.S. 

Central Park, both a National Historic Landmark and the first New York City Scenic Landmark, is located between 59th and 110th Streets between Central Park West (Eighth Ave.) and Fifth Avenue, and is 843 acres in size. The northern area of the park is located in both East and Central Harlem. It is among the most famous parks in the world and was the first landscaped public park in the United States. The land for the park was purchased for $5 million in 1856 and consisted of swamps, bluffs, and rocky outcroppings. In 1857, the Central Park Commission held the country’s first landscape design contest and selected the Greensward Plan submitted by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, considered the founders of the landscape architecture profession in the United States. Entirely man-made, Central Park is one of the urban wonders of the world, a green oasis in the midst of the great concrete high-rise landscape of New York City. The building of the park was one of the nineteenth century’s most massive public projects, with some 200,000 workers used to pull off this great feat. The park first opened for public use in the winter of 1859.

The park contains eighteen different entrances, nearly fifty fountains and monuments, twenty-one playgrounds, fifty-one sculptures, and thirty-six bridges and arches. There are 58 miles of pedestrian paths, 4.5 miles of bridle paths, 6.5 miles of park drives and 7 miles of benches (nearly 9,000 benches in total). Today there are 26,000 trees, including 1,700 American elms. It is visited by over 25 million people each year. Some of the most popular places to visit in the park are the Great Lawn, where the New York Philharmonic and the Metropolitan Opera hold two free concerts in the summer; the Delacorte Theatre, which is home to “Shakespeare in the Park”; Strawberry Fields, which is the garden of peace built in memory of Beatles member John Lennon; Summer-Stage at Rumsey Playfield, where music, spoken word, and dance performances are held during the summer; and Wollman Ice Skating Rink, to name a few. In the portion of the park located in Harlem, you will find the Conservatory Garden, which is the only formal garden in Central Park; the Harlem Meer, an 11-acre lake that makes it the second largest man-made body of water in the park; the Charles A. Dana Discovery Center, which is the park’s only environmental educational center; the Blockhouse, a fort still standing from the War of 1812; Lasker Pool and Rink; and Duke Ellington Circle, featuring the first monument in New York City dedicated to an African American and the first memorial in the United States honoring jazz music giant Duke Ellington.

Facilities: Baseball fields, basketball courts, bicycling and greenways, dog runs, fishing, horseback riding trails, ice skating rinks, swimming pool, nature centers, paddle boat, rowboat, and canoe rentals, playgrounds, recreation centers, restaurants, soccer fields, tennis courts, volleyball courts, zoos, and aquariums.

There is absolutely no reason to leave the park until you want something to eat and there are two great places nearby – Ottomanelli Bros., for great burgers and steaks and a fabulous pre-fix brunch Saturday and Sunday for just $9.95; and Miss Mamie’s Spoonbread who serves up real soul food, at great prices.

Transportation: Bus—M1, M2, M3, M4, M10, M96, M106. Subway—B, C, 2, 3, 6 to 110th St.

Dance Theatre of Harlem – Harlem Travel Guide – iPhone, iPad, iPod

Experience extraordinary multi-cultured dance

Fire Bird

After the death of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., in 1968, Arthur Mitchell, the first permanent African American male dancer with the New York City Ballet, was inspired to give ballet classes to local children in his community of Harlem. Mitchell and his teacher and mentor, Karel Shook, founded the Dance Theatre of Harlem (DTH) as a school of the allied arts and a professional ballet company. Over the past forty years the theatre, world-renowned as a multicultural institution with students and dancers from the United States and abroad, has shattered the myth that Blacks could not perform classical ballet due to their physical build, or because ballet was foreign to Black culture. DTH serves as a living reminder that the arts belong to us all. Treat yourself to the DTH Open House Series, which hosts affordably priced community performances by its students, the Dance Theatre of Harlem Ensemble, as well as special guest artists.Nearby is the Church of Intercession where every Christmas season the church honors Clement Clarke Moore, the poet who wrote “A Visit from Saint Nicholas” and is buried in the cemetery across Broadway. Or you can visit the Hispanic Society of America Museum and Library. It promotes, preserves, and educates individuals on thearts and cultures of Spain, Portugal, and Latin America.Transportation: Bus—M3, M100, M101. Subway—A, B, C, D to 145th St. (front of train)

Famous Fish Market – Harlem Travel Guide – iPhone, iPad, iPod

Where the locals go for fried fish or local fav

We don’t know what came first, the name Famous Fish Market or—because the fried fish is so doggone good—the reputation. This place does one thing, and does it right …. fried fish, shrimp and chips. The take-out-only basement restaurant is literally a hole in the wall and can easily be missed if it weren’t for the long line, especially for dinner, which snakes down St. Nicholas Avenue. Portions are more than generous and the price is right.

Cuisine: Seafood

Make a stop at the Harlem School of Arts while in the neighborhood. The school is a cultural destination in Harlem presenting dance, music and theatrical productions. Hamilton Grange is a short walk away. It’s the only home owned by Alexander Hamilton and offers tours, re-enactments and live music.

Graham Court – Harlem Travel Guide – Sutro Media

A model of affluent living in Harlem……made for the movies

Graham Court, which was designated a landmark in 1984, was commissioned by William Waldorf Astor and is one of New York’s grandest courtyard apartment houses. Designed by Clinton & Russell right before they undertook the more imposing Apthorp on 79th and Broadway, this building was completed in 1899–1901. It features a landscaped courtyard entered through an arch that is clad in Guastavino tile. Most apartments contain six to ten rooms—some having a music room and a maid’s room and grand fireplace mantles, proving intent for the affluent families that first occupied them. The apartments are now home to African American writers and artists and have served as a popular movie location for such films as Jungle Fever and New Jack City.

Check out Harlem Arts Salon online in advance to gain admittance to this private apartment in Graham Court where book signings and readings are held. Stop in Food for Life Supreme for a delicious meal with a vegetarian slant. Dishes are basically new American fare with a soul food twist. There is no meat on the menu but plenty of delectable plates offering cheese, sour cream, fish and portabella mushroom entrees.
