"One of the best spots in town! "

If you are a fan of Jazz music, then this is a great place to be and must be on your list of places to visit. The National Jazz Museum in Harlem might be small in size but has an interesting display the history of jazz through photographs, recordings and listening parties. It was indeed one of the best spots in town!

National Jazz Museum in Harlem

The National Jazz Museum in Harlem is New York City's museum dedicated to preservation and celebration of Harlem's jazz history. The idea for the museum was conceived in 1995. The Museum was founded in 1997 by Leonard Garment, Counsel to two U.S. Presidents, and an accomplished jazz saxophonist, Abraham D. Sofaer, a former U.S. District Judge who gave the initial gift in honor of his brother-in-law Richard J. Scheuer, Jr., and matching funds from the Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone. For more than 15 years the museum was based in East Harlem at 104 East 126th Street.

On February 1, 2016 the Museum re-opened in a new space on the ground floor of 58 West 129th Street in Central Harlem with approximately 1900 square feet of exhibition space.
