When the Lenox Avenue Bridge opened in 1905, early 20th-century planners foresaw 145th Street as "one of the important business streets of upper Manhattan." The Bronx connection also redoubled the crosstown thoroughfare's identity as a hub of public transit, a destination of sports and social life, and a benchmark of Harlem's expansion as the capital of Black America. Join Eric K. Washington to explore sites including the Budapest-inspired "underground" trolley system; Hotel Olga, the Harlem Renaissance era's preeminent luxury hotel for African-Americans; Lenox Oval, home base of the Lincoln Stars Negro League baseball team; Witoka Studio; the Odeon Theatre; the historic Dunbar Apartments and Harlem River Houses; Jackie Robinson (né Colonial) Park and more.Event Registration is closed.
