The HarlemNOW map, published in May, 2009, is cultureNOW’s latest effort at taking the cultural pulse of a living New York City community. The project began with research done by students of urban planning at the Pratt Institute, and from that foundation grew into database documenting the buildings, artworks, and civic and cultural institutions that make Harlem one of New York’s most enduringly vibrant communities. Click on "Harlem Map" above to begin exploring the map, or search our database directly in “Search HarlemNOW.” Or visit our “podcasts” section, to hear from some of the most colorful civic and cultural voices in Harlem today. Or explore the neighborhood yourself with one of our walking tours, or even create and print your own tour.
How you experience HarlemNOW is up to you!
