Where can you sample authentic African, African-American, Spanish, and Jamaican food all in one place? One of Manhattan’s most underrated neighborhoods, Harlem. Try the “Taste of Harlem Walking Tour,” where you can try a little bit from some of the area’s best eateries, while seeing some historic sights along the way. The tourguide Neal Shoemaker told Time Out New York, “I feel sometimes like I’m Mr. U.N. I mean, Kentucky kids eating authentic African food? It’s so cool! They’re not going to get that in Louisville.”
Tours meet at the Harlem Heritage Tourism & Cultural Center at 104 Malcolm X Boulevard. On the way back, go a bit east to space for lease Tapestry at 124th Street and 2nd Avenue. With about 8,500 SF for lease, it’s perfect for your restaurant or other retail use. Perhaps you can be a future stop on the tour!
