Hush Tours - Walk This Way Thru Harlem Tour

It may have got its name from Dutch settlers in 1658, but for the past 100 years this neighborhood has been most associated with African-American culture, particularly art and music. And back in 1973, way before Run DMC or the Beastie Boys, Harlem started to give the world hip hop. You’ll be guided by one of many hip hop celebrities who now proudly lead this tour around the spiritual home of Jay-Z, Dr Dre and Drake. You’ll learn about the four elements that make up the genre and visit key landmarks such as the Graffiti “Hall of Fame “, the walls surrounding a playground where in 1980 street art started to be taken seriously. You’ll see historic Harlem jazz clubs and the legendary Apollo Theater where a 17-year-old Ella Fitzgerald made her singing debut and Billie Holiday, Aretha Franklin, the Jackson 5 and James Brown have all strutted their stuff. And there’ll be frequent bursts of hip hop soundtrack along the way to help create unforgettable memories.
