WHY

From the days of the fabled jazz tinged Harlem Renaissance rent dances, the house party has served in solidifying bonds of the Uptown community. The home is where amazing conversations come about, ideas exchanged, empathy gained, new music broken and dance moves perfected.

It is the duty of the new generation to help the community's reputation of style, creativity and neighborly warmth stay intact.

Through creating and sharing memorable moments within each other's home, the Harlem House Project seeks to keep a familiar air of togetherness alive within a period of growing diversity and unfamiliarity.

We can do this.
