This is Harlem.
My friend, Danielle (aka Miss Harlem Shake 2016) asked me to snap a few photos of her before/during the African American Day Parade in Harlem.
I always feel somewhat weird about visiting Harlem, because it’s just so… otherworldly. Being a Brooklyn girl, I always feel out of place in Harlem. There’s always something going on. The streets are loud… and the clothing is even louder. Harlem is more than just a place, it’s a feeling. And sometimes, it’s a feeling that I just don’t understand, but I enjoy it while I’m there.
(P.S. My loyalty lies with Brooklyn, so I’ll say Brooklyn is also more than just a place… it’s a VIBE.)
