"Insider Gordon Polatnick offers a fabulous introduction to the Harlem jazz scene with walking
and bus tours that typically take in some of the lesser-known clubs and plenty of jazz history.

"My favorite thing about this place is that it kinda acts as a hang out for everyone
in the neighborhood who gives a fuck about the past, present, and uncertain
 future of Harlem.  I ended up getting into this crazy 25 minute conversation
with a lady about the politics of gentrification in New York.  It's strange to be
in Harlem right now and watch the neighborhood change right in front of your eyes. 
Hopefully there will always be space for places like Big Apple Jazz."
