*SPECIAL OFFER FROM OUR NEIGHBORS THE MUSEUM OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK*
Inspired by the Museum of the City of New York’s exhibition, Rhythm & Power: Salsa in New York, Elena Martinez, folklorist at City Lore, will lead a walking tour of East Harlem, the barrio of salsa, to explore the music venues, theaters, and social clubs that fostered the nascent dance movement. Stops will include the first Spanish Methodist Church where the Young Lords Party staged some of their most audacious civil rights campaigns, New York City’s oldest botanicas, spiritual shops that sell candles, herbs, and amulets, and the Julia de Burgos Latino Cultural Center, a community staple even to this day.
The tour will begin on the sidewalk in front of the Museum of the City of New York at 3:00 pm and will be about two miles in length. In the case of rain, it will be rescheduled to Friday, July 28th at 3:00 pm.
