Although I've lived in/just outside of Manhattan my whole life, I've never taken a deeper exploration into Harlem until today! Jonathan led a Jewish History of Harlem tour that was the perfect balance of informative, fun and easy to understand. We meandered the streets, stopping every few blocks for another piece of history we would've otherwise overlooked. His knowledge of the city as a whole, and this neighborhood (as well as many others that found their way into our conversations) was evident. It is clear he has a passion for history and culture and I'd be interested in joining another one of his tours soon!

Thanks so much, Gina; it was an absolute pleasure! I went home and started researching the connection of Adolph Zukor to Rockland County that you told me about. Super fun to picture him playing golf with Charlie Chaplin in the Hudson Valley!
