What We Do

For over 10 years, Harlem Park to Park has driven strategic initiatives that honor the rich culture of the neighborhood while supporting its economic development.

We strengthen local business by producing community events, promotional campaigns, business development programs and institutional partnerships.

Harlem Park to Park has been at the forefront of:

  • Stewarding and championing the brand of Harlem as a viable hub for entrepreneurs and preserving Harlem's culture

  • Creating new spaces and opportunities for Harlem-made brands to build and flourish

  • Powering our member brands by drawing national and global attention to them

Our mission is to cultivate a thriving local economy that preserves Harlem’s cultural heritage and establishes Harlem as NYC’s most vibrant food and lifestyle hub.

We began as a collaboration among nine business owners in Central Harlem, the geographical area from Central Park North to 144th Street and Morningside Park to Marcus Garvey Park. Harlem Park to Park is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization.
