  • It is a neighborhood located north of Manhattan (precisely the end North where ends the Big Apple). From 1920, he was one of the largest centers of residence of many African-Americans and today are 72% of its population. It used to be one of the more dangerous New York but today is far from being so. Houses many museums by artists of the genre such as Ella Fitzgerald, Aretha Franklin and recognized characters. Which is typical of this neighborhood with masses Gospel with its typical choirs, music and dance. They are open to all public and held every Sunday at 11:00 (one well known is Antioch Baptist Church). The tourist is always welcome in these churches, but recommend sit back for do not disturb those who believers attending (in short, one goes as a spectator). It is not required to go formal, dress but if minimally arranged, something will notice is that believers much care its image in mass and van very arranged the event. Something to keep in mind is that they tend to be long (can that around 2 hours), so if you want to see and then retiring, sitting back, not they will bother in the service.

Fortunately I didn't get what I was and I explained the ro intimid ire a tourist and that the bad image that were giving affects about them not the whole city.
