The H Stands for Holidays

Harlem puts a special twist all its own on everything associated with it from food, to art, to fashion. And it goes without saying no one throws a party like Harlem—home of some of the original 24-hour dance clubs and over-the-top Drag Balls. So naturally, Christmas time is a magic time in Harlem.

As your city or town turns on the holiday vamp, please take a moment to enjoy a little bit of 1926 holiday cheer.

Happy Holidays & Happy New Year!
