REMEMBER: MAPPING HARLEM'S HEYDAY


Tuesday, October 25th, 7:00PM, Mapping Harlem’s Heyday, at The National Jazz Museum in Harlem, 58 West 129th Street just east of Lenox Avenue.  Elmer Simms Campbell drew a vibrantly brilliant map of Harlem nightspots in 1932 for Manhattan magazine. A pioneering African-American illustrator, he created a stirring image at once well-informed and devoid of the period’s racist clich├ęs. Hear the music made in those clubs while learning invaluable background information from Harlem experts.  $10.00 Suggested Donation

REVIVE: TWELVE STORY TOWER ON LENOX


The old building at 415 Lenox was demolished back in 1997 based on DOB records and the empty lot with the chain link fence has been vacant all this time but that might change soon.  Neighbors have been mentioning that a twelve-story tower is being planned for the site and some are not very amused by this news.

INTRODUCING: DEE GALLERY SIGNS ON FIFTH AVENUE

UPDATE:  The gallery is apparently open based on a tip received this morning.
An exact opening date has not been announced yet but the Elizabeth Dee gallery on Fifth Avenue now has official signage up.  This location by corner of 126th Street was the original address for the Studio Museum of Harlem and it is befitting that a new art space will arrive since the building has been vacant for quite some time.  Dee is a very notable downtown gallery and the move to Harlem will only continue the momentum of the art scene in the neighborhood.  More details in our past post: LINK
