“Our theme this year is Old Places, New Spaces. Since the first house tour some 25+ years ago, Harlem in general and the Mount Morris Park area in particular have seen both thoughtful new builds and the restoration of iconic neighborhood treasures. This tour will take you inside some of each − from cutting-edge contemporaries and creative updates to classic elegance that retains the glamour of a bygone era and eclectic combinations that meld bits of all the best. In short, the places and spaces that we call home.”
