You’re invited to Harlem’s Mount Morris Park Annual House Tour

By HarlemCondoLife
Did you receive the invitation from Mount Morris Park Community Improvement Association regarding their 22nd Annual House Tour? I did and I am so psyched for the event! Now I am passing along for your consideration! It is Sunday, June 12th!

This is the time when one can see some of the most beautiful brownstones in New York City (for me the entire universe) that line and make up Central Harlem, also known as the Mt. Morris Park area. Remember how this area was recently praised by New York Magazine?

Here is the low down for those interested in attending:

  • 11 AM to 4 PM: Follow the Self-Guided Tour of Homes 
  • 1 PM and 3 PM: Join the Architectural Walking Tour
  • 12 Noon and 2 PM: Go Inside Historic Harlem
  • 1:30 PM: Join the Marcus Garvey Park Walking Tour

Mark your calendars and hope to see you there June 12!

Get a Special of View of Historic Harlem

By Harlemista

Ever walk along the gorgeous side streets of Central Harlem and find yourself yearning to see what’s inside those majestic brownstones?

Next Sunday is your chance–join the 21st Annual Historic Mount Morris Neighborhood House Tour running from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM. You can chose your tour: either self-guided, or led by noted Harlem historian and preservationist John T. Reddick, or, new this year, a special tour of 3 private houses not on the original tour conducted by Michael Henry Adams, author of the fantastic book Harlem Lost and Found. At 1:30 there is also a Marcus Garvey Park Tour which will highlight the amphitheatre that will soon be undergoing renovation, and the 152 year old Fire Watchtower on the Acropolis, the oldest structure of its kind in New York City.

Immerse yourself in Harlem’s rich history to appreciate it anew. For tickets (20% off if reserved in advance!) and more information, click here!

Kate Winslet and Evan Rachel Wood on set in Harlem for HBO’s Mildred Pierce

By HarlemGal for HarlemCondoLife

We heard online that Kate Winslet was going to be in Harlem June 1 filming scenes for HBO’s Mildred Pierce…and turns out she was in Harlem! We also found out that Evan Rachel Wood was in Harlem yesterday as well. They were both in the Mount Morris Historic District, which is located between 120th to 124th Street from Lenox Avenue to Madison Avenue .

In my view, perfect location to capture some gorgeous brownstones for the background shots for Mildred Pierce. I will definitely be watching Kate and Evan Rachel on HBO when the film comes out. In the mean time, check out the photos of Kate and Evan Rachel in Harlem! Cool!
