In the Steps of Salsa Walking Tour

Price: $25 & up | $20 for Museum Members
"El Regalo Mágico" by El Mac and Celso Gonzalez of CERO Design

Inspired by our exhibition, Rhythm & Power: Salsa in New York, Elena Martinez, folklorist at City Lore, will lead a walking tour of East Harlem, the barrio of salsa, to explore the music venues, theaters, and social clubs that fostered the nascent dance movement. Stops will include the First Spanish Methodist Church where the Young Lords Party staged some of their most audacious civil rights campaigns, New York City’s oldest botanicas, spiritual shops that sell candles, herbs, and amulets, and the Julia de Burgos Latino Cultural Center, a community staple even to this day.

The tour will begin on the sidewalk in front of the Museum of the City of New York at 3:00 pm and will be about two miles in length. In case of rain, it will be rescheduled to Friday, July 28th at 3:00 pm.

$30 for adults | $25 for seniors, students & educators (with ID) | $20 for Museum Members.
