I went to Vinateria yesterday with friends for pre-dinner drinks. I've been several times before, including for dinner, and it's always a fun place to be with friends in. The atmosphere is great and the service is very attentive and nice. I recommend it!

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
