The Journey Within: A Q&A With Chazmere

BY Led Black (@Led_Black) At a time when most of the Hip-Hop coming out of New York City sounds like it is coming straight out of the south, Chazmere’s music is a breath of fresh air.

Jumel Terrace: A neighborhood with a connection to Hamilton—the man and the musical | Brick Underground

By Marjorie Cohen The Jumel Terrace Historic District is one the most interesting neighborhoods in upper Manhattan, and it happens to be full of history.
