Home of the Harlem Renaissance: Where art and culture meet history. This is where we live, learn, work, and serve.

Harlem is a Manhattan neighborhood with a lot of history and a bright future. Much of our community work helps local low-income families, and our students are as active in their outreach and service as they are in the social and cultural scene.

Arts and Architecture

From the world-renowned Apollo Theater to the historic Studio Museum, the tree-lined streets of Hamilton Heights to the Georgian homes on Strivers’ Row, the sights and sounds of Harlem are like nowhere else.

Food and Entertainment

TouroCOM students have many choices when it comes to eating out.  Famous for its soul food and African eateries, the neighborhood is currently experiencing a resurgence of great cuisine and nightlife.

Faith and Service

Opportunities to volunteer and serve the community are abundant as well, both through student activities and local organizations. There are thriving Jewish (Chabad), Christian and Muslim communities as well, and many mosques, synagogues, and churches welcome student congregants.
