    The Harlem Flophouse is certainly not a flophouse in the original sense of the word. The house is very nicely done up in its original state and the rooms all are (as far as we could see when we secretly took a peek in just...More

    As a hub of African American culture, Harlem has
    played a vital role in the history of New York City.

    big-name stores. Turn down almost any corner, and
