    The depth of history here and access to less publicized black history knowledge is amazing. There is often access to great events with well-respected thinkers and trendsetters.

    The museum, galleries, theaters and gift store make this a cultural "must" when in Harlem. The lower level features research materials that are rare and worthy. Have pen & paper handy to take notes.
