The former home of Alexander Hamiltoon

We will pass by the former home of Alexander Hamilton, and then I will show you its former location, just a few blocks away. (The home has been relocated twice! ;-)

Various sites where famous people lived and played

Many people do not know, but particular buildings in Harlem were known for being the home to a number of people famous in Black American history. I will show you some of these buildings and talk about some of the people who lived in them. I will also show you the former site of a tennis club where Arthur Ashe and Althea Gibson trained (this was back when tennis clubs were segregated). I'll also show you a current car parking garage that used to be a former horse stable. Once I point it out to you, you will see very clearly that it used to be a stable for horses. We will pass by the building where I used to live in Harlem, and I can talk a bit about my experiences living there.
