Harlem yesterday and today

The New York community of African descent resides in an area north of Central Park, Harlem. Known throughout the world as the black neighborhood of New York, Harlem was founded by the Dutch in 1658 as a residential area for the bourgeoisie, and only later inhabited by the former black slaves used for the construction of Broadway, the link between the district itself and the city center.

Harlem was and still is one of the cradles of Afro-American community. The 20s and 30s saw him as a protagonist on the stage of the great Jazz. In its premises, the legendary Cotton Club and Sugar Cain, then played musicians of the rank of Duke Hallington and Count Basie; it was the era of the Harlem renaissance.

The 60s, on the other hand, marked a negative turning point: poverty, crime and overcrowding created the conditions to make the neighborhood a real ghetto. Fortunately today the famous have been recovered Apollo theater - stage of the greats of black Jazz - and it Studio Museum, dedicated to the African diaspora and Black America.
