The Mount Morris Park Historic District was first designated by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission. Being one of the earliest landmarked districts in the 5 boroughs in Harlem, it covers a 16-block area in central Harlem. Going north from West 118th to West 124th Streets and West from Fifth Avenue to Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. Boulevard (7th Avenue) Mount Morris Park Historic District showcases a remarkable blend of late 19th and early 20th century residential and church architecture associated with the Gilded Age. The well known "Doctors' Row" commonly known as West 122nd Street, Mount Morris Park West, and Malcolm X Blvd. all demonstrate the remarkable survival of substantially unaltered 19th-century streets, rare in most areas of Manhattan. Once the walking tour comes to a close you will be treated to a lunch at a local Harlem restaurant. This 3-hour walking tour takes pride in showing off the beautiful city and sharing the history of the Mount Morris Park Historic District and all of the beautiful sights along the way!
