Virtual Harlem

A year ago, I posted on the Value of Simulations, looking particularly at the Frank Lloyd Wright Museum and the Great Wall of China: https://grinnsworld.wordpress.com/2009/10/08/the-value-of-simulations/ I have since updated the SLurls to those locations, which have both moved.

Yesterday, I visited the newly updated Virtual Harlem: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Virtual%20Harlem/142/135/30 I missed the grand reopening last week, and so missed the jazz and tours, but it is open for your own wandering around–or if the jazz and literature and culture of the period is part of your discipline, you could create your own tours for your students. Here are some snapshots i took of the Cotton Club, the Apollo Theater, Morningside Park, and a lovely brownstone overlooking the park.
