For more than 20 years the community of Mount Morris Park has been opening our doors and inviting New Yorkers and visitors from around the world into our homes. Over those two decades, we've grown from a struggling but determined group of residents to a beautiful and thriving community. One thing that's remained constant, however, is the character of our neighborhood.
This is character that takes many forms. It's the character of the long-time residents who were determined to take Harlem through another, more lasting renaissance.
It's the historic character of original architecture that homeowners maintained as they revitalized brownstones. It's the character that landlords and tenants have "decorated in" to new construction.
And it's the characters themselves that call Mount Morris Park home, adding color and vivacity to an already-exuberant neighborhood.
Wherever it comes from, this year especially, we say
Don't miss this day full of history & inspiration.
