I honestly think Harlem is under-rated. All of the people I talked to there were really nice, and there are so many different cultures and faces that I think it is invaluable to visit. I speak Spanish, so I was able to understand many of...More

We stayed here for a week in June. The neighborhood on 145th was lively. Subway and good food close by. Plenty of markets, architecture and sounds of New York and its rich culture.

We only visited the Apollo Theather from the outside. But gladly would have stayed any longer. Neighborhood is colorfull and seems relaxed.

Although nothing is Compared to Mid-Town Manhattan, Harlem is definitely a fantastic option if you want to know the Real New York. I strongly recommend to take Contrasts NY tour to visit Harlem, Bronx & Queens and experiment a real taste of NY.

Harlem is a great place. Just traveling the distance of 125th Street, there is so much business happening here. I would say, it's a clone of 34th Street. There is so much history here. Great restaurants too. Harlem is accessible by bus, subway, and Metro...More

Yes.. you need to walk through Harlem ( go on a walking tour) and learn about it's history. If only the streets could tell their stories. Visit a restaurant for authentic soul food and jazz singers.

Wanted to know about the flea market in Harlem. I've been told they have the best deals on shopping there in Harlem, just didn't want to pass in up. Everyone shopping for bargains these days?
