The Spanish Harlem Walks are an amazing learning opportunity for everyone. My two High School Spanish classes are grateful for learning about Spanish Harlem’s culture and heritage through the beautiful murals and mosaics. Leigh is a knowledgeable and patient guide that showed us this vibrant and beautiful Barrio in NYC. Thank you so much for the opportunity.
