Unearth New York’s cultural infuences, from Chinatown to Harlem

Every neighbourhood tells a different story – from the temples and noodle shops of Chinatown to the jazz beats of Harlem and the patchwork of communities in Queens.

This small, cultural treasure has been showcasing African American artists for more than four decades. It’s an important point of connection for Harlem cultural fgures and features artists including collagist Romare Bearden and satirical painter Robert Colescott (; 144 W 125th St; closed Mon–Wed; suggested donation £4.50).


This semi-enclosed market is a low-key mix of African crafts, leather goods, beaded bracelets, spices, textiles, oils, drums and carved wooden sculptures, and locals gossiping or heeding the call to prayer. The market lies in the heart Little Senegal (or Le Petit Sénégal), a strip of blocks around W 116th St, packed with the colourful shops and eateries of Harlem’s West African immigrants (52 W 116th St; 10am–8pm).
