Jeanette Lynn - Harlem Landmarks

This project was a study of historical and landmark buildings in Harlem, New York City. Below is one example:

Graham Court was built in 1901. This eight elevator building has one of the more luxurious edifices to grace Harlem. The centerpiece is the fabulious archway below, which rises two stories high. The building was the set for the Wesley Snipes films "New Jack City" and "Sugar Hill." It is located at Seventh Avenue, between W. 116th and W 117th Street, N.Y.
