Roundtrip to and from meet-up location
The tour meets at the northern tip of Central Park. We’ll steadily make our way to the top of Manhattan, exploring along the way. The journey begins as we head over to El Barrio (Spanish Harlem). After savoring the most delicious tacos East of the Hudson, we'll hit the road and make our way through Mount Morris Historic District in Harlem, one of NYC’s premier neighborhoods, constructed at the end of the 1800’s, where you'll get a glimpse of some of the city’s much-admired architecture. Next, get ready to taste the best award-winning pan fried chicken from a local, long-time Harlem restauranteur in NYC. It’s time for a bit of walking as we set out to explore this Harlem neighborhood and meet real New Yorkers doing extraordinary things that you would not expect in a dense urban environment. Back on the limo-van, we’ll head further Uptown and visit the Historic District of Hamilton Heights (named after one of the country’s founding fathers) and Sugar Hill (named for the “sweet life” during the Harlem Renaissance) before we sample some flavorful appetizers in the heart of Washington Heights’ “Little Dominican Republic” on St. Nicholas Ave. At this point of the tour you will still want to be fully indulged, so we’ll drive up the final stretch of the world’s most famous avenue in Manhattan - Broadway, and discover Inwood. It’s the neighborhood with the only remaining natural forest in the city and happens to be where the Dutch purchased Manhattan Island from the Native Americans. As you prepare to relax and wind down for the finale, you’ll be ready to taste some of the best " chocolate'' & “desserts” made at the top of Manhattan and the occasion to savor them at the city’s best-kept secret destination overlooking the Hudson.
