☞ SEE: Harlem in Flux
Once more, Camilo Jose Vergara's brilliant documentary work on Harlem from 1970 to 2009. Straightforward and with a neutral eye, we once more see how far Harlem has come and how things are still the same. The above piano shop on West 125th Street is now a Radio Shack. Maybe some things are better old school after all. See more about the artist in the NY Times: LINK or go to the New York Historical Society for his current exhibit Harlem in Flux. 170 Central Park West between 76th and 77th Street. Tel. (212) 873-3400. Take the B,C train to 81st Street.
