O que você fará

This is a deep dive into Harlem culture and history with the reigning Queen of the Harlem Jazz Scene. Meet Amanda, your own personal Diva for a Day, at the oldest juke joint in Harlem. If you're lucky the ever-dapper 84-year old proprietor and Harlem legend, Sam Hargress Jr. will be around to greet you and share stories from a life that took him from a small town in Alabama to Checkpoint Charlie in Berlin; protecting JFK; and moving to Harlem in the 60's where he learned all his moves.

Amanda knows everyone and no one could ever forget Amanda, so as you walk around Harlem’s beautiful tree-lined streets of brownstone homes, you’ll stop to greet neighbors and linger to take in the spontaneous moments that epitomize Harlem today: It may be a display of wild motorcycle madness down Lenox Ave; African drumming in Powell Plaza; a sidewalk poetry recital; or a street art exhibit that will capture your attention for a while.

Feeling the true beat of the streets, your route will take you past the Apollo to hear about how Ella Fitzgerald, James Brown, and Michael Jackson all became legends there. The 1920’s Prohibition Era comes alive walking in footsteps of Billie Holiday down the original Swing Street and Blvd of Dreams to see the Tree of Hope. You’ll visit 60 ft murals of Dizzy Gillespie and stroll the Walk of Fame, ending at Sylvia's. (Gordon is the alternative guide).

Conheça seu anfitrião, Gordon

Anfitrião do Airbnb desde 2017
  • Identidade verificada
Hi, I'm Gordon, a 3rd generation New Yorker. My co-host, Amanda, and I are in love with Harlem. Personally, I’ve owned and operated a Harlem jazz club, and have been designing and leading immersive jazz tours through NY's underground scene since 1997. Amanda is a 20-year Harlem resident, Columbia University graduate, and Jazz Diva Supreme who shows you Harlem's hidden secrets and iconic landmarks. Amanda knows everyone and no one could ever forget Amanda. Her intimate Harlem tours are legendary.  She’s not only a licensed NYC guide, but a jazz singer with a true diva's sense of style all her own, and a personality to back it up. Guests all enjoy her warmth, knowledge, humor, and communication style- making her one of the best reviewed guides on TripAdvisor.

In case Amanda can't be present I will be happy to do the tour myself.
