- Gracie Mansion: The Mayor of the City of New York’s official residence.
- Harlem’s traditional brownstone houses.
- General Grant Memorial: The mausoleum is the resting place of President Ulysses S. Grant and his wife, Julia.
After visiting the vibrant neighborhood, head to a local congregation for a Sunday worship service, where you’ll enjoy a soulful gospel choir singing beautiful and inspiring music.
The time you remain in the church depends on the day and number of visitors.
At the end of the service, you will head back to Manhattan and be dropped off in the Times Square area.
