Walk the Walk

2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.

Take a stroll around East and Central Harlem above 125th Street, straddling Fifth Avenue, the traditional dividing line between East and West. Kathy Benson Haskins of Landmark East Harlem (LEH) will introduce you to the treasures of the second historic district that LEH has proposed for listing on the National and State Registers of Historic Places. Featured sites include 19th-century wood frame houses, Victorian-era rowhouses, landmarks associated with James Baldwin and Langston Hughes, former church buildings that have been given new purposes, and the brownstone stoop that served as the site of the iconic 1958 photograph of jazz musicians by Art Kane for Esquire magazine.

25th Precinct Community Council, Tonight

Precinct Council Meeting will be held tonight, Wednesday, June 15th at 6:15 PM.  This meeting will be in-person.  We look forward to discussing the public safety concerns in the community.  

As summer approaches and the many holidays, big barbecues and basketball games let’s discuss as a community how we can work together with law enforcement to promote safety.  We have some ideas that worked in the past so maybe we can try it again – but we absolutely need you to be involved. 

See you at the Precinct located at 120 East 119th Street between Lexington and Park Avenues.
