Wow, what historical places, it was so much fun to take my family and re-visit places that are so special. Best advice is to arrange a private tour to see the wonder of the area.

I have been to Harlem first time in this year although i had been to nyc many times. It was so sophisticated. I like it and planning to go there again for my detailed trip on it.

The most amazing thing is that you will start feeling the Harlem climate from the first minutes on the bus! I was lucky it was Sunday and all the people were dressed smart - their clothes were simply breath-taking! Not like the traditional elegant clothes you see in the centre. The dresses of the women, the suits of the men,... More

I went on a Jewish historical tour of Harlem. It was great to see how many of the Baptist churches were once synagogues. We were taken to where Milton Berle, Fanny Brice and Lane Bryant lived. Who would have known!

I stayed with a friend, years ago, who lives in Harlem on 140 something and I was so impressed with how big and open the streets were with the trees and nice buildings. I felt safe day and night. This year I walked from the metro stop on East 125 to West 125. Must say, and my NYC friends concur,... More

Harlem is located in Upper Manhattan. It is a changing, revitalized community, with a great history.

I visited Harlem during my recent visit to the New York. A lively & colourful neighbourhood, it is very energetic and vibrant. Home to mostly African Americans and Hispanics, there is a blend and fusion of cultures here that gives it a characteristic vibe. Gentrification is coming to parts of harlem (and it will accelerate in days to come). We... More

Some places ar ed very nice, some places are very dirty. Some areas have spanish food which is delicios, other areas have delicious suthern cooking. Very hard to park so you need to travel y subway or buses. Harlem is not a place for siteseeing. You not walk Round, especially at night.

We came for the first time since 1989 when I remember it was a little edgy. Then again so was the whole of New York. Like the rest it's come up in the world since those days and feels safe place to wander around. More prosperous than it used to be but a world away from the lower part of... More

First time to Harlem, but not to Manhattan for an afternoon musical at Olivia Dempsey Theater on corner of 127th St and Malcolm X Blvd. As soon as you come off on the street after getting off the subway, the wide tree-lined avenues take your breath away and there is none of the massive crowds you get at downtown Manhattan....

As a hub of African American culture, Harlem has played a vital role in the history of New York City. Today, the neighborhood is as vibrant as ever as new businesses and developments go up next to local institutions. The heart of the neighborhood is bustling 125th Street, where street vendors and historic landmarks like the Apollo Theater mingle with big-name stores. Turn down almost any corner, and you’ll discover some of the most beautiful blocks in the city, filled with handsome brownstones, soul food restaurants, corner shops, and scenic parks. For a taste of a real New York neighborhood, it’s hard to top a visit to Harlem.
