    Forget plans and visit on Target Sundays where you get the crowd without the crowds price. The gift store, while pricey, is superb and fun. A place is in serious need of a cafe. Dance Friday is a must

    You must check out the mural downstairs which is a spin on street life in Harlem. It is spectacular. Sit down on the bench and take a moment to really look closer.
