Nightshot(s): July 23rd. Uptown @ 6:30-11:30pm.
Meet at 125th and Lexington in front of the Duane Reade on the northwest corner. Walk down 125th through Marcus Garvey Park, past Maya Angelou’s old Harlem home and up Lenox, past funeral homes and churches, laughing at the Atlah and lamenting the old Lenox Lounge. A Red Rooster crossed the street but we go westward, ho. Down 125th, past Bill’s old offices and Amateur Night with a dude hustling CDs on the corner. Walk until St. Nicolas. Turn right and up through the park to City College. Admire the architecture and stare back at the gargoyles. From Broadway, get on the 1, down past 125th, checking in on Columbia’s progress on their eminent domain from up above and back under to 116th for an introductory mini tour of the campus, to be continued again more thoroughly after the show.
SMOKE Jazz Club. Party of 8. Neal Smith Quartet.
Good music, good people, good times.
