    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

    bustling 125th Street, where street vendors and
    historic landmarks like the Apollo Theater mingle with
    big-name stores. Turn down almost any corner, and
