☞ SEE: Casa Frela
Casa Frela, one of Harlem's newest galleries in Mount Morris Park, is also housed at one of its most prestigious buildings. In 1885, the premier architectural firm of the time, McKim, Mead and White, designed this well-appointed row house for contractor James C. Miller. The top photo is from 1939, and the lower photo is the house today. The museum's founder, Lawrence Rodriquez, showcases new talent and has recently debuted a show especially for next week's Pride celebration.
