Harlem has become very upscale and is completely safe. I would not worry.

I live 20 blocks north of where you'll be staying.

It's safe to take the subway and walk a few blocks

Just remember, Like any city you need to keep your wits about you.

Enjoy the area!

I will suggest that after dark you return with the madison avenue bus M1.....during the day the train is ok.

Generally when I was in Harlem, I found it quite safe to walk around.
