The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture has been under construction in the past year and now the facade appears to be finishing up on Lenox at the corner of 135th Street.  Somewhere in the mid century, architects abandoned the idea of natural light and some heavy handed buildings ended up populating the streets of the city.  Modern renovations including new glass additions rectifies this a bit and provides more curb appeal for pedestrians.  We are not sure if there will be a digital monitor included out front but any sort of large display on the ground level will surely bring in more visitors also.  Learn more about the incredible mission of Arturo Schomburg who sought to preserve the history of his culture after moving to Harlem in the early 1900s from the Caribbean: LINK
