Experience a Gospel Service in a Harlem Church
Take a memorable Harlem bus tour in New York City on a Sunday morning and visit the heart of New York’s Afro-American community and witness the history and current Renaissance.
Our guide to Harlem on Sunday Tour
From early Dutch farms and historic sites of the American Revolution, today Harlem has evolved into a Afro-American political and cultural center rich in history and tradition.
See historic Hamilton Grange and the Morris Jumel Mansion, used as military headquarters during the American Revolution. Learn about the Harlem Renaissance, where Black writers, intellectuals and musicians flourished and political movements were born. See the landmarks of Harlem including the townhouses of Strivers Row, and Sylvan Terrace, the Abyssinian Baptist Church and 125th Street, Harlem’s commercial center.
Of course, no trip is complete without a stop at the world famous Apollo Theater, where some of the best African- American performers graced the stage and where many got their start. A huge mainstay of American television with their nationally syndicated show, “Showtime at the Apollo”.
But, the highlight of our morning will be a local church service to hear the inspirational & soul stirring sounds of Gospel music known throughout the world. What better way to spend a Sunday morning!?
