“A Poetic Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2009

I enjoyed visiting Hughes' old home, not only as a fan of his work and fellow writer, but as a fan of New York and its immense history. Little has been done to remake the space, which adds to its authentic feel. Definitely worth a visit if you're walking through Harlem, either before or after the jazz club. I came here to perform poetry about two years ago; poetry open mics may or may be happening now.
