Harlem on my mind. Photos taken at the Studio Museum in Harlem, outside the Apollo Theater, and along 125th Street. Tho photos are of James Vanderzee old photography studio at 124 and Lenox Avenue. It is now a real estate office. James Vanderzee was a famous Harlem Renaissance photographer. He photographed my Dad in 1935.

The foliage views and vistas were taken at Marcus Garvey Park formerly known as Mt. Morris Park.
