If you take line 1 all the way up – you’ll end in Harlem. I visited the place for the first time yesterday, and, gee, this city keeps surprising me. You’re still in NYC, on Manhatten, however, everything is different. The crowd, the smells, the people – its the opposite of 42nd street where I usually am. If you follow down the road on 143rd street — you’ll notice a complex with a huge cross on it – which is a sort of mulitcenter for that neighbourhood. What you have to do is – enter – pay 5$ – and you’re guaranteed 1.5 hours of fun. I have never danced swing before, actually I usually suck at dancing, however, the vibes and the people just make you move. The group of dancers consisted of the most random people I could imagine – from a chinese lady with dancing shoes, a tattooed guy who had a very strong stench of alcohol around him, to a podgy black lady that in the end shouted in my ear “You’ve got tha’ swing sister”. I’ll defintely do this again.
