Overview

Welcome to Harlem Tours presents the Mount Morris Park Historic District Tour. With tickets from ShowTickets.com, you’ll walk through one of the most incredible architectural areas in New York City. The neighborhood dates back to the Gilded Age, and its remarkable mix of buildings, homes, churches, and more from the late 1800s and early 1900s truly has to be seen to be believed.

The Mount Morris Park Historic District is a sixteen-block area in Central Harlem, from West 118th street to West 124th street, and between Fifth Avenue and Adam Clayton Powell, Jr Boulevard. The area was one of the first stretches of Harlem to be designated a landmarked district, and because of that, the well-known “Doctors’ Row” displays a rare stretch of Manhattan streetscape that’s basically unaltered since it was built in in the late 19th century. Your tour guide will offer fascinating details about the area, like how the neighborhood was once used by Native Americans as a lookout across all of Manhattan. Mount Morris Park is considered one of the city’s most charming and distinctive residential neighborhood, and there’s no better way to see this hidden architectural gem than with the expert guides on the Mount Morris Park Historic District Tour with Lunch. Because what’s better than classic architecture than a belly full of delicious local Harlem food?
