New York City is made up of five boroughs: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. Each one has enough attractions—and enough personality—to be a city all its own. Learn more about them with this guide.
Harlem Stage boasts an impressive history. Since 1979, its Aaron Davis Hall has hosted such luminaries as musician Tito Puente, poet Maya Angelou and even former South African President Nelson Mandela. So it’s only fitting that the organization turned The Gatehouse—a building with a compelling back story of its own—into a state-of-the-art theater that will help ensure an even brighter future for the arts in Harlem. The registered landmark, a former water-pumping station, now hosts a steady stream of new works—including theater, dance and a wide range of musical styles—by artists of color.
