Having watched many films and programmes over the years , I was pleased to say I had visited Harlem on two occasions on the same day, 23rd December, did a small amount of shopping and moved on. Enjoyed the experience.

Forget all of what you heard about Harlem. This is a very nice place to hang out. Lots of restaurants, nice parks, and we felt very safe

Harlem is losing its once-gritty appeal. I am regularly here for travel and work. Would I recommend for tourists and travelers, will it depends where you go or visit

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.
