Over its long history, East Harlem has been home to many diverse cultures, each leaving its imprint on the community. As East Harlem, most recently known as “El Barrio” or “Spanish Harlem,” transitions into becoming known as “SpaHa,” some of its touchstones are becoming endangered. Join Urban Historian Justin Ferate to view delightful architectural treasures and cultural landmarks reflecting the neighborhood’s varied histories – from recent years and from generations past. The touring material for each tour will somewhat cross over, but there are special sites unique to each tour. The tour will begin with views of some of East Harlem’s beloved street murals including “The Spirit of East Harlem” by Hank Prussing and Manny Vega, and will end near the 116th Street Subway Station.
