This historical New York neighborhood Harlem is most famous for the artistic achievements of its "Harlem Renaissance."

Located in the northern part of the Manhattan borough, Harlem was originally a Dutch village. Over the years, it became predominantly African American.

  • It is the must-see for Sunday since you can see in detail the special characteristics of the neighborhood and its inhabitants. If is possible to organize and attend to a legal religious Gospel. They are wonderful!

  • Went there with the Metro, is just north of Central Park. I knew only from films, a classic Harlem beat Street. It was afternoon at all not insecure. Here, the African-American middle class in Super chic classic stone houses with stairs lives rather before that. Actually, I wanted in one of the many churches to the service of the Gospel, was just on the wrong day. I came by on a school, where the parents picked up their children. Before an Eismann, the ice in 3 varieties (I had mango), for $1 sold. This was really tasty. Then am I down passed the street to Central Park, to many small shops and restaurants. I've seen still corners, how known from 80s Movies, broken and full of grafitti. A very nice colorful neighborhood!

  • Typical film mainly black district. Environment, bars and shops. Preserved architecture, and beautiful parks or places like the Apollo Theater and gospel churches.
