Mae West: Hot_l Harlem

Discover the Harlem hotspots loved by MAE WEST — — along with a new angle on the night clubs where she performed along with Ella Fitzgerald, George Gershwin, Al Jolson, Billie Holiday, Irving Berlin, etc. — — when you enjoy a walking tour of Harlem.
• • A six-hour adventure exploring West 125th Street (and beyond) is enthusiatically led by The Big Apple Jazz Tour's founder: Gordon Polatnick.
• • Owned by Mae's generous lover Owney Madden, The Cotton Club would broadcast their Sunday night night shows over the radio. Featured acts on "Celebrity Night" might put Mae West at the mike or other prominent Caucasians such as George Gershwin, Al Jolson, and Irving Berlin.
• • In her novel The Constant Sinner, Mae situated Babe Gordon selling cocaine hidden in rouge containers at the department store near the Apollo.
