(3.7/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
This historical New York neighborhood Harlem is most famous for the artistic achievements of its "Harlem Renaissance." Visit the many neighborhood landmarks listed on the National Register of Historic Places, see live music or show, or stop into a local restaurant or shop to experience a bit of the area's history and changing culture. Located in the northern part of the Manhattan borough, Harlem was originally a Dutch village. Over the years, it became predominantly African American. In the 1920s and 1930s, a period known as the "Harlem Renaissance," members of the neighborhood produced an abundance of artistic content, particularly music and writing.

  • Another of the many places that you think you know, just by seeing you in American films and series. I was surprised by the extent of its main avenues, and the history of this "working-class".

  • Here much as seen in many broadcasts. There are houses with grafitti, just like very beautiful houses with wide steps. The people here are very friendly and helpful in all of New York! You should definitely plan a par hours and go through here.
