The Hamilton Heights/Sugar Hill tour takes you through one of the City's most architecturally distinguished and culturally significant neighborhoods. Built for middle and upper middle-class white residents between the mid-1880s and the First World War, the neighborhood achieved its greatest fame during the 1930s and 1940s when a large number of black professionals moved to the area, including such notable figures as the Rev. Adam Clayton Powell, Joe Louis, author Ralph Ellison, and many other personalities associated with the Harlem Renaissance.
Comments about Smart Destinations Traces & Places: Harlem Walking Tours:
We enjoyed our walking tour of Harlem. There was a lot of emphasis on architecture and I think I would have preferred some more local spots. It was definitely worth while though and glad we went.
