A Feminist Walk through Harlem to Celebrate Remarkable Women

Janes Walk

Led By Leigh Hallingby, Licensed NYC Tour Guide, Harlem Walks

We will take a virtual walk through both Central Harlem and Spanish Harlem, stopping at places where accomplished women, some famous and some not, are honored. Stops include murals and mosaics, statues, plaques on the sidewalk, named buildings, and commemorative street corners. And the remarkable women whose stories we will hear range from A’Lelia Walker to Nicholasa Mohr to Zora Neale Hurston. The tour also offers a great look at Harlem, recently referred to by the NY Times as “New York’s most storied neighborhood.”
