In the photo above my friends Mother holds her two Grand Daughters as we celebrate their 1st Birthday at the Harlem Heritage Tourism and Cultural Center. I’m extremely thankful to the industry of Cultural Tourism for giving us a platform from which to meet people from around the world + moments like the one captured in the image above with local residents.
With each passing day I realize another way in which Cultural Tourism can be used as a double-edged magic wand to expose visitors to the authentic lifestyle of local residents and improve the quality of life for he overall host community – Harlem.
When balanced properly the possibilities are endless – this is what excites the good folks at the Harlem Heritage Tourism and Cultural Center.
Love live Cultural Tourism – making the world better.
