Celebrate Harlem’s historic and cultural richness during HARLEM WEEK, a Harlem-based month-long festival running from July 28 to August 31, 2019. HARLEM WEEK celebrates this year its 45th anniversary with a very strong theme: Our Local History Creates a Global Impact, highlighting the impact and influence of Harlem on the world. What originally started as a small tribute has now become one of New York’s longest running events, with over 100 events spread across the whole neighborhood, celebrating Harlem’s culture and brilliance. Here is a shortlist of the events you should not miss.
More and more people choose to travel independently, and this trend keeps on growing through the years. What motivates a person that can’t usually spend a weekend without his or her friends to take a trip somewhere on their own? Many lone travelers have a strong desire to explore a place alone in order to see how far they can go in an unknown environment. Some people choose to leave their familiar grounds to feed their need for post-breakup or job space or a bit of life reflection. A small journey is always beneficial, especially if you want to start afresh with solid foundations. New York is the perfect city to visit if you feel lonely.
