Listen to ‘The Changing World: One Block in Harlem’

By HarlemCondoLife
WNYC presents The Changing World: One Block in Harlem. This program “traces this iconic neighborhood’s story by telling the history of a single street in Harlem – 120th Street between 5th and 6th Avenues – from 1910 to the present.” The Changing World: One Block in Harlem ”describes life as it was and life as it is today and asks what price has been paid by long-time black residents for the area’s gentrification.” Listen to this program Friday, April 29 at 11 PM on AM 820, Sunday, May 1 at 6 AM 93.9 FM and then on Sunday again at 9 PM on AM 820.
