Spending a sunny day walking through Harlem is hard to beat. There’s incredible architecture everywhere you look, the street life is thriving, and a sense of history hovers over it all. This summer we had the chance to get an even more intimate glimpse of one of our favorite neighborhoods thanks to the Mount Morris Park Community Improvement Association annual tour. From the immaculate interiors of beautiful brownstones to the sacred spaces of Owens Funeral Home, here are a few photos that capture the spirit of the day.
