Meet the Team

Welcome to the Greater Harlem Area!

A Letter From the President Tony Rogers;

As one of the most culturally rich and ethnically diverse areas in the country, we invite you to join us for delicious cuisine, amazing entertainment, a rich history, and outstanding cultural events. The Harlem Tourism Board’s (HTB) major goal is to create partnerships with tourism-related businesses in Harlem and members of New York City and New York State’s tourism industry and become a mutually beneficial economic growth engine for the best-known urban community in the world. 

“Harlem is currently the 2nd most requested urban tourist destination in New York City and is known internationally for its history and culture” states William “Tony” Rogers, President of the Harlem Tourism Board and co-founder of Harlem Week Inc. the largest urban cultural and economic development event in the United States. The mission of HTB will be to connect the dots that will allow the growing Harlem Tourism Industry to become a major economic development tool that creates business and career opportunities. 

The Harlem Tourism Board is the Economic Development and Marketing Arm for the rapidly growing Harlem Tourism Industry. HTB is your one-stop-shop for developing contacts, relationships, and counsel on how to explore and navigate the best known urban community in the world. 

The HTB website can provide you information on restaurants, places of interest, special events and historic locations in the Greater Harlem Area. We can also assist you with contacts for individual and group tour packages. 

HTB will help you find the right people to plan your unique Harlem Experience. Let us share with you our museums, special shopping areas, fairs, cultural events, historic houses of worship, unique architecture, art galleries, historic landmarks, hotels and bed and breakfast accommodations, nightlife, and so much more! 

We can’t wait for you to visit! Let HTB take the guesswork out of your Harlem experience.
