Harlem is a neighborhood characterized by African American culture, street vendors, soul food, jazz clubs and gospel lunches among other things. It has been changing quite a bit with the addition of chain stores, gentrification, and remodeling of some buildings. While I've been there several times, this last time I was there, I was surprised to see the many new... More

I’ve been to NYC many times and wanted to do a gospel tour since long – yet never managed for lack of time. During my recent visit, just before Christmas, together with my wife I finally had a go. And then it all began with a mistake. I had booked the tour on a Sunday, but then realised that we... More

Harlem is a nice change from other, more subdued parts of Manhattan. The streets are filled with people trying to sell you things. They don't hassle you too hard, but hassle enough to make your walk fun! Harlem has lots of restaurants, shopping, and entertainment. Definitely a neighborhood to visit.

Harlem with its Jazz spots is a must for every jazz enthusiasm! Join a juke joint tour with Gordon and Big Apple Jazz Tours! You will never forget!

Was very well taken back when I came to Harlem. The architecture of the buildings was awesome, the streets were clean and everyone was living their life. My boyfriend and I ate at Amy Routh and the food was awesome. Visit Harlem for its not what you think of.

Had some great pizza from Custom pizza in Harlem on cnr of 123rd/Frederick Douglass Blvd (customfuelpizza.com). We had the Brooklyn Bridge pizza - delicious, good price & you can watch it being freshly made by the great staff. The best pizza we had in New York!

This area is one of New York City's vibrant & historic neighbourhoods. The home of good food (Soul food!), lovely architecture, music, Churches & a hotbed of diversity in ethnicity - Harlem is a must visit while in New York. I would recommend a meal at Red Rooster as part of your itinerary when you come through.

We stayed 1 week in Harlem in a bed and breakfast. Mainly because I refuse to pay the bonkers prices of downtown hotels but also to check out this iconic, if not touristic, area. We found the locals very helpful and friendly and didn't feel threatened even though we were clearly 'not from these parts'. Subway links are good so... More

drove around and saw all I needed to. At every stop light hawkers would walk between the cars selling their stuff...lots of watches. Did see street markets and such. Native New Yorkers all told me this=stay away from Harlem after dark
