Once a month, at the beginning of the month, Bruce from Walking Tours Manhattan hosts a Dessert Fest walking tour of different parts of the city. It’s free, and all he really asks is 1$ donation that’s 100% for charity.  This month he did the dessert shops of Harlem. Since I live in the neighborhood […]
