Harlem, New York City - Video Tour of Hamilton Heights, Manhattan
Welcome to this new video tour offered by New York Habitat. Today you will get a look into yet another great neighborhood of New York City, Hamilton Heights. Watch the other episodes of the Harlem series from New York Habitat : Morningside Heights (
) & West and Central Harlem ( )
The borders of Hamilton Heights are 135th Street to the south, 155th Street to the north, the Hudson River to the west and Edgecombe Avenue to the east.
Hamilton Heights is a neighborhood within the area of Harlem and it takes its name after Alexander Hamilton, the first U.S. Secretary of the Treasury, who lived there in the last few years of his life.
Hamilton Grange National Memorial
Alexander Hamilton came to New York at the age of 17 to study at King's College, which is now Columbia University. He later became a politician and built his federal style house at this location in 1802, which is called Hamilton Grange National Memorial. One of the most interesting moments of Hamilton's life was actually his death. He died on July 12, 1804 as a result of being mortally wounded from a pistol duel the day before with Aaron Burr, who was, at the time, the Vice President of the United States! In those days dueling politicians was not just a figure of speech!
Dance Theatre of Harlem
The Dance Theatre of Harlem is a ballet company and school which was created to introduce ballet and dance to the children of Harlem. Today it has grown into a multi-cultural company which offers training in ballet, choreography and music to people of all ages.
The Harlem School of the Arts
The Harlem School of the Arts was founded in 1964 to create an opportunity for the children of Harlem to be exposed to and to learn musical instruments. It started with piano lessons and later violin, drama, visual arts and dance classes were added.
Sugar Hill is a neighborhood within Hamilton Heights. In the 1920s this area was inhabited by wealthy African-American people who had such a sweet lifestyle that it was given the name Sugar Hill. It has since been declared an historic district due to the amazing rowhouses that have been preserved in the district
City College of New York
City College of New York was the first public college in the United States. It was founded in order to give the opportunity to immigrant youth to attend college. City College occupies a large part of the Hamilton heights section of Harlem, from 130th to 141st Streets, and has many historical buildings and monuments on its campus.
Riverbank State Park
Riverbank State Park occupies 28 acres of land in Hamilton Heights along the Hudson River. Inspired by the urban rooftop designs in Japan, this park was built on several levels, which makes it very unusual and different from the other parks in New York City. This park offers many outdoor sports activities.
After seeing so many historical houses in this video, don't forget that New York Habitat ( ) has a variety of rental possibilities and especially fully furnished apartments rentals and vacation rentals as well. If you want to find an accommodation in Hamilton Heights, check out these apartments:

Harlem, New York City - Video Tour of West Harlem, Central Harlem & Apollo Theater
In this new video tour, New York Habitat ( ) presents you a great way to learn about Central Harlem and West Harlem, the historic neighborhood in New York City! You will learn many lesser-known aspects of the fabulous neighborhood just a short subway ride away from midtown and downtown Manhattan.
Don't hesitate to check out our other video about the Morningside Heights part of Harlem, New York. ( )
Harlem is a large, historical area in northern Manhattan. It's a major residential, cultural and business center. It stretches from the East River west to the Hudson River between 155th Street to the north and 110th Street to the south, which is the northern boundary of Central Park.
Harlem is so large, in fact, that it would be impossible to cover in just one video. So instead, our first stop in our Harlem series will be Central Harlem & West Harlem!
Harlem was originally a Dutch village founded around 1658. It was named after the city of Haarlem in the Netherlands. In the early 20th century many African Americans moved to this area and in the 1920s and 30s many famous artists, musicians and businessmen became well known in Harlem and took Black culture to a higher level, in a movement known as the Harlem Renaissance.
The Studio Museum of Harlem -- 124 West 125th Street
At The Studio Museum of Harlem, there is more about black history including guided tours, readings and exhibitions of African American art and culture. There is a suggested donation for entry.
The Apollo Theater - 253 West 125th Street
The Apollo Theater is one of the most famous and historic music hall in the U.S. This famous club is almost exclusively associated with African American music and performance. During the Harlem Renaissance and specifically in 1934, the Apollo Theater introduced its regular Amateur Night shows, during which many new stars were born and legends were made. In fact the Apollo launched the careers of famous artists such as Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, James Brown, Diana Ross & The Supremes, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin and Mariah Carey...just to name a few. During amateur night, the audience would clap to approve the performers they liked and boo the performers they weren't too excited about. At that point an executioner, a man with a broom, would sweep the bad performers off the stage. Even today, every Wednesday is Amateur Night at the Apollo.
Accommodations in Harlem:
If you want to catch the true spirit of Harlem, you should consider renting an apartment from New York Habitat . We have vacation rental all over Harlem , and with its convenient location in Manhattan plus excellent express subway access, you'll be well connected to all parts of the Big Apple. New York Habitat's selection of Harlem homes includes furnished apartments in historic townhouses that will allow you to experience the real African American unforgotten history.
Have a look too to the 1 Bedroom Vacation Rental in Harlem featured in the video.
Shopping in Harlem -- 125th Street
125th Street runs from east to west and is considered the Main Street of Harlem. Since 2001 many sections of the street have been developed with new stores, such as Old Navy, H&M, Starbucks Coffee and the famous Magic Johnson Theaters, a chain of movie theaters, developed by the famous African American basketball player, Magic Johnson. So you can definitely spend a fun day.
I hope you have had fun with our little tour of Central Harlem and West Harlem. It's only a small part of the greater Harlem area. If you know of other must-see places in Harlem, leave us a quick note in the comment box below.
If you are planning a trip to New York, you should definitely consider Harlem as a home base. It's just a short subway ride away from midtown and downtown Manhattan and furnished apartment rentals are generally less expensive in Harlem than other areas of Manhattan. Don't forget that we have apartments not only in Harlem but also in many other neighborhoods of New York City.

Find someplace to eat, have a walk through Grand Central and admire the modern architecture of Midtown, and be amazed by some huge public artworks.
Midtown has a tremendous density of places, people, attractions and landmarks which await your discovery and the best way to experience it of course is on foot. You'll never run out of interesting sites. And while you're strolling along, enamored by the famous avenues, don't just walk past the side streets. They have got some fascinating things to check out such as West 46th Street, packed with restaurants, bars and stores. You'll get souvenirs cheaper than at Times Square.
Fifth Avenue's commercial heartland is one of the world's great urban vistas, always packed with pedestrians and lined with exclusive department stores and boutiques, too numerous to fully mention.
Continuing back down Fifth we turn on 42nd Street, to reach Grand Central Terminal, one of the great railway stations of the world and perhaps New York's most famous interior space.
We are plunging into a very worthwhile twenty blocks which can be nicely enjoyed along Madison Avenue with serious window-shopping, people watching and looking up at the buildings peaks. The shops and sights along the way will keep you thoroughly entertained.
You've heard about the New York minute? It's like a split second in which a lot of things get done. New York is quick. In fact, when you're walking, be sure not to take up the entire sidewalk because you're going to be blocking some speeding New Yorker coming up behind you.
We reach the Upper Eastside, with that rarefied atmosphere of the blueblood territory. The multimillion mansions and the nice side streets. Be sure to have a look as you walk along Madison and the other avenues down the side streets and see where the superrich live.
Lexington is one of the most interesting of New York avenues. It still retains a lot of its earlier character and quality, not quite so yuppiefied and gentrified as the other avenues that we been walking on, all of what you been lovely, but Lexington is especially nitty-gritty and a fine place to end our walking tour of New York's grand avenues.

24 Hours in... New York City
24 Hours in... New York City
New York is the most populous city in the United States, and the center of the New York metropolitan area, which is one of the most populous urban areas in the world. A leading global city, New York exerts a powerful influence over global commerce, finance, media, culture, art, fashion, research, and entertainment. As host of the United Nations Headquarters, it is also an important center for international affairs. The city is often referred to as New York City or The City of New York to distinguish it from the state of New York, of which it is a part.
Located on a large natural harbor on the Atlantic coast of the Northeastern United States, the city consists of five boroughs: The Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island. The city's 2008 estimated population exceeds 8.3 million people, and with a land area of 305 square miles (790 km2), New York City is the most densely populated major city in the United States. The New York metropolitan area's population is also the nation's largest, estimated at 19.1 million people over 6,720 square miles (17,400 km2). Furthermore, the Combined Statistical Area containing the Greater New York metropolitan area contained 22.232 million people as of 2009 Census estimates, also the largest in the United States.
New York was founded as a commercial trading post by the Dutch in 1624. The settlement was called New Amsterdam until 1664 when the colony came under English control. New York served as the capital of the United States from 1785 until 1790. It has been the country's largest city since 1790.
Many districts and landmarks in the city have become well known to outsiders. The Statue of Liberty greeted millions of immigrants as they came to America in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Times Square, iconified as The Crossroads of the World, is the brightly illuminated hub of the Broadway theater district and is one of the world's busiest pedestrian intersections. Wall Street, in Lower Manhattan, has been a premier global financial center since World War II and is home to the New York Stock Exchange, the world's largest stock exchange by market capitalization of its listed companies. Manhattan's architectural skyline is universally recognized, and the city has been home to several of the tallest buildings in the world, including the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building and the twin towers of the former World Trade Center. The original Chinatown in Lower Manhattan is one of the most prominent ethnic Chinese enclaves outside of Asia and draws throngs of tourists to its bustling sidewalks, restaurants, and discount retail establishments.
Mass transit in New York City, most of which runs 24 hours a day, is the most complex and extensive in North America. Approximately one third of mass transit ridership and two thirds of rail ridership in the United States originates from within the New York metropolitan area. The iconic New York City Subway system is the busiest in the Western Hemisphere, while Grand Central Terminal, also popularly referred to as Grand Central Station, is the world's largest railway station by number of platforms. New York's airspace is one of the world's busiest air transportation corridors. The George Washington Bridge is the world's busiest motor vehicle bridge.
New York City is famous for its ethnic diversity and population density. In 2005, nearly 170 languages were spoken in the city, and 36% of its population was born outside the United States; the New York region continues to be the largest metropolitan gateway for legal immigrants to the United States.
New York City carries an important role as a center of culture. The city prominently excels in its spheres of art, cuisine, dance, music, opera, theater, independent film, fashion, museums, and literature. The New York Times has won more Pulitzer Prizes for journalism than any other news publication. The city is the birthplace of many cultural movements, including the Harlem Renaissance in literature and visual art; abstract expressionism (also known as the New York School) in painting; and hip hop, punk, salsa, disco, freestyle, and Tin Pan Alley in music. New York is also widely celebrated in popular lore, featured frequently as the setting for books, movies, and television programs.

Cities - The Real New York 1 of 2 - BBC Travel Documentary, recorded 23.10.2010
This Saturday sees the third episode of BBC World's five-part travel series, The Real... , this time visiting New York. The Real... New York takes a unique look at the Big Apple, taking viewers behind the more familiar scenes of the city to find the hidden highlights that the guide books don't show you.
The Real... New York, sponsored by InterContinental Hotels & Resorts, transmits on Saturday 1 December at 1230 GMT, and is repeated on Sunday 2 December at 1030, 1730 and Monday 3 December 0230 GMT.
Our guides to New York are three of the city's most famous residents, who give a uniquely personal tour of their home city. The contributors include:
ALEK WEK, Supermodel and author
Born in southern Sudan, Alek Wek fled the war-ravaged country to become a refugee in London, where she was spotted by a model scout while still in her teens. Alek has combined her successful modelling career with charity work, including work on the U.S. Committee for Refugees and AIDS awareness, and written a book about her life experiences. She has also created her own handbag range - Alek Wek 1933.
Alek begins our tour in Brooklyn, close to where she lives. The area boasts an eclectic mix of shops, her favourite being Layla Boutique. Inside the shop Alek rummages through the clothes, scented oils and towels, enjoying the vibrant mix of colours, fragrances and designs. While browsing the clothes rails she even shares with us some fashion tricks of the trade when it comes to mixing and matching clothing.
Alek then takes us to visit Brooklyn Bridge Park, as she so often does at the weekend. The bustling park is enjoyed by locals, children at play, photographers and theatrical performers alike, all there to enjoy a little slice of nature in the middle of the urban jungle.
We then visit Hue-Man Bookstore in Harlem, a favourite store of Alek's and the location of her first book signing. The store offers a wide variety of literature, as well as a laid back coffee shop, and a parade of interesting customers, many of whom stop Alek to say hello and remark on how inspirational she is to young women.
MADHUR JAFFREY, Television chef, actress and author
Madhur Jaffrey is a TV presenter, actress and writer, perhaps best know for her Indian and other Asian cookery programmes on BBC Television.
Madhur takes us to Chinatown on a tour of her favourite food shops, where she buys the ingredients for use in all of her Asian dishes. She guides us around the array of fresh produce, suggesting recipes as she goes, giving us a glimpse of her famous culinary skills. Then she takes us on an extended tour of the tiny back streets and byways of Chinatown; we are right in the heart of Manhattan, but feeling as if we are in Asia.
Madhur then shares with us one of her favourite places to eat in Chinatown, Wanton Garden. The restaurant offers a huge range of delicious noodles and toppings, all presented with authenticity and skill. Madhur orders a take-away lunch for herself and her husband and then jumps in a taxi before it has time to go cold.
SPENCER TUNICK, Artist
Spencer Tunick is an American installation artist who documents his works using photography and video. He is best known for his installations that feature large numbers of nude people posed in artistic formations, with the largest gathering to date taking place in Mexico City's main square, which featured more than 18,000 people .
Spencer first takes us to Printed Matter, a bookshop in Chelsea that he visits when looking for presents for his friends, family and himself. The shop sells limited edition books and artwork, making it a perfect place to find something unique. Spencer then takes us round the corner to The New York Book Art Fair, an annual fair of contemporary art books, catalogues and magazines, and is a fair unique to New York.
As the sun fades over the city that never sleeps, we emerge from the fair and head for one of Spencer's favourite bars, Max Fish, on the Lower East Side. The walls around Max Fish are covered in art, as it is a place where emerging artists can display their work. Wall space is given over to some fantastic graffiti, and the pinball machine, pool table and jukebox all add to the atmosphere. When Spencer first started out as an artist he used to go to Max Fish to hand out prints to people to encourage them to pose for his nude installations.

L'abbiamo vista crescere negli anni e trasformare lo Skyline di Manhattan.

Walking Around Penn Station in New York City
Pennsylvania Station, also known as New York Penn Station or Penn Station, is the main intercity railroad station in New York City. Serving more than 600,000 commuter rail and Amtrak passengers a day — up to one thousand every ninety seconds— it is the busiest passenger transportation facility in the United States and in North America.
Penn Station is in the midtown area of Manhattan, close to Herald Square, the Empire State Building, Koreatown, and the Macy's department store. Entirely underground, it sits beneath Madison Square Garden, between Seventh Avenue and Eighth Avenue and between 31st and 34th Streets. The station has 21 tracks fed by seven tunnels (the North River Tunnels, the East River Tunnels, and the Empire Connection tunnel).
Penn Station is at the center of the Northeast Corridor, a passenger rail line that connects New York City with Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., and intermediate points. Intercity trains are operated by Amtrak, which owns the station, while commuter rail services are operated by the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) and New Jersey Transit. Connections are available within the complex to the New York City Subway, and buses.
The original Pennsylvania Station was inspired by the Gare d'Orsay in Paris (the world's first electrified rail terminal) and was constructed by the Pennsylvania Railroad from 1901 to 1910. After a decline in passenger usage during the 1950s, the original station was demolished in 1963 and replaced in 1969 with the current station. Plans for Pennsylvania Station include the possibility of shifting some trains to the adjacent Farley Post Office, a building designed by the same architects as the original 1910 Pennsylvania Station.
