Sylvia Woods, the owner of the famous Sylvia’s Restaurant, died yesterday at the age of 86, only a few hours before she was set to recieve an award from Mayor Bloomberg celebrating the 50th anniversary of the restaurant. As a Harlem landmark, Sylvia’s has served not only the neighborhood, but also politicians, celebrities and tourists, some of whom came from as far as Japan to eat her food.

"A Great Day in Harlem" - Art Kane attributed his famous photograph to being young and naïve. In August 1958 he was hired by Esquire magazine to come up with a photo to open an article about jazz. He figured he would contact every major jazz musician in New York to show up on 126th street in Harlem at 10am to take a group portrait. Getting jazz musicians anywhere together at 10am seemed impossible, but to everyone's surprise 57 musicians showed up. It was Art Kane's first professional photograph

A Great Day in Harlem A Great Day in Harlem or Harlem 1958 is a 1958 black and white group portrait of 57 notable jazz musicians photographed on a street in Harlem, New York City. The photo has remained an important object in the study of the history of jazz. Art Kane, a freelance photographer working for Esquire magazine, took the picture around 10 a.m. on August 12 in the summer of 1958. The musicians had gathered on 126th Street, between Fifth and Madison Avenues in Harlem. Esquire published the photo in its January 1959 issue. Kane calls it "the greatest picture of that era of musicians ever taken." Featured in the photograph (left to right, in rows starting at the back): Benny Golson, Art Farmer, Wilbur Ware, Hilton Jefferson, Art Blakey, Chubby Jackson, Johnny Griffin, Dicky Wells, Buck Clayton, Taft Jordan, Zutty Singleton, Red Allen, Sonny Greer, Jimmy Jones, Tyree Glenn, Miff Mole, J.

The film was nominated in 1995 for an Academy Award for Documentary Feature. As of December 28, 2011 only 4 of the musicians are still living. -wikipedia
