Pedestrians entertain themselves as they stroll on West 122nd Street and Riverside Drive  in this image looking north with Grant’s Tomb in the background in Morningside Heights in Harlem, NY, 1897.

Harlem has always been a place of style and entertainment, in this image fashionable Harlemites entertain themselves walking hand in hand, with umbrellas drawn to shade the setting sun, horse drawn carriages and coaches pick-up and drop off passengers as they wait chatting with each on this busy sunny day.
