Harlem, New York 1934 7th Ave (Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Blvd) Left side: Hotel Theresa or The Theresa Hotel

Harlem (USA). 'New York’s gridiron doesn't end at 100th St – there’s lots more of the city to explore, starting with Harlem, a bastion of African American culture. There are good eats and jazz beats on offer here, not to mention a riveting history captured in the brick and stone of its churches, landmarks and theaters.'
