While I was walking around Central and East Harlem this past weekend for the Harlem Art Walk, I stumbled across Harlem Pop, a marketplace, art gallery and performance space located at 2037 Fifth Avenue in Harlem. This was my first time there. I liked the place very much!

There are items for sale by local designers, beverages, and various art work. I really enjoyed watching the artists work on the mural inside on the first floor. There were two muralist there working on the day I visited. I want to go back to Harlem Pop to see the finished product. There is also a second floor at Harlem Pop. It has wonderful black and white photos on display from various artists.

So if you’re looking for something to do this weekend, go have a “pop up experience” in Harlem. Harlem Pop is open from 11 AM to 7 PM on Saturdays and on Sunday from noon to 6 PM on Fifth Avenue between 125th and 126th!
