Janes Walk

Led By Kathleen Benson Haskins, Founding Member, Landmark East Harlem, AND Carey King, Uptown Grand Central

Landmark East Harlem and Uptown Grand Central present an Instagram Live tour of East Harlem. Viewers will wind through the streets of lower East Harlem with our guides, discovering surprising histories behind historic neighborhood structures while gaining a front-row view of murals, mosaics, and other street art. Sites include the childhood home of actress Cicely Tyson, Hope Hall, El Barrio Firehouse, St. Cecilia’s Church, and Odd Fellows Hall.

We will be using the auto-generated closed-captioning feature on Instagram. Followers will need an Instagram account to participate in the virtual walk.
