Murals and Mosaics of East Harlem: A Walking Tour

The many colorful murals and mosaics of East Harlem, AKA Spanish Harlem, tell us so much about the history, culture, and politics of this neighborhood and its residents. Some murals and mosiacs are dedicated to accomplished citizens of East Harlem, such as the writers Julia de Burgos and Nicholasa Mohr. Others honor world-famous people such as Che Guevara and Celia Cruz. Many of the murals and mosaics include the gorgeous scenery of the tropical islands from which so many members of this community emigrated to New York. A number of the gifted artists who created the artworks received commissions from the City of New York as part of projects to add more public art to the East Harlem community.
