☞ READ: World Platforms for Harlem Museums
This reminds us of the ongoing talks of the relocation of the National Jazz Museum (lower photo) which has been planned for sometimes now but still has not gained enough momentum to actually happen. Located on the East Harlem side of 126th Street, the modest building is not in a location with a lot of foot traffic and is not really conducive to the important historic nature of the establishment. In the past, the Victoria Theatre on 125th Street was one option but more recently the old Mart 125 new development proposal across from the Apollo appears to be the final loction: LINK. Over a year later, there has not been any news about financing the said project so only time will tell if the jazz museum will be reborn on 125th Street.
