Description:

WELCOME TO HARLEM/MORNING SIDE:Where history feels like home. Harlem is known as an important touchpoint of American jazz, literature, and civil rights history. And for good reason: major streets like Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Blvd., Malcolm X Blvd., and Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. pay homage to civil rights leaders that actually walked those passageways. Meanwhile, venues such as The Apollo Theater, Hotel Theresa, and Sylvias Restaurant stand as iconic landmarks frequented by both history buffs and culture seekers alike.THE NEIGHBORS:Professionals and lifelong residents. Long-standing residents have been the driving force for community development in Harlem since the early 1900s, seeing the neighborhood through generations of artistic innovation, cultural shifts, and social change. Professionals are fans of Harlems energy and cultural crossroads status. Sleek cafe patios, historically named scenic plazas, art galleries, and ethnic markets represent a refreshing collision of old and new. Meanwhile, mid-career newcomers find that the neighborhoods renovated brownstones, tree-lined streets, and options for public and private schooling make Harlem an attractive place to settle down.WHAT TO EXPECT:A quiet residential scene in the midst of a bustling cultural hub. Unlike many other tourist and commuter-friendly Manhattan neighborhoods, life in Harlem can feel as quiet as it does connect to the rest of the city. On one hand, theres a peaceful, residential spirit throughout the neighborhood, evidenced by street pick-up basketball games and block parties. But Harlem is also home to a thriving cultural scene, which brings a constant vibrancy and excitement to the neighborhood.THE LIFESTYLE:Soulful. A community-oriented atmosphere defined by music, food, and cultural events. Life in Harlem is as rooted in cultural tradition as is it energized and diverse. In the last decade, restaurants like Red Rooster, Harlem Tavern, and Harlem Shake have reinvented a dining scene traditionally defined by soul food icons like Sylvias and Amy Ruths. Music is another of Harlems greatest uniting traditions and has left a legacy that is preserved proudly throughout the neighborhood. The music scene spans from huge, iconic jazz lounges to small neighborhood bars. Burgeoning hip-hop artists are known for making occasional appearances at dance clubs where they grew up. Harlems flair for the performing arts is best represented by the Apollo Theater, which originally opened as a dance hall and ballroom in 1913. Ella Fitzgerald, Aretha Franklin, and The Jackson 5 played their Amateur Nights, while Showtime at the Apollo and musicians such as James Brown, B.B. King, and Paul McCartney solidified the venue as a timeless entertainment landmark. Outside of entertainment, church-lined streets and a pervasive sense of spirituality and activism continue to speak to Harlems reputation for community awareness. The community feels most alive during the summer, when Harlems many parks are abuzz with children, picnics, and live music festivals. Baseball diamonds, an open bandshell, and local music acts make Jackie Robinson Park a natural gathering spot, while Marcus Garvey swimming pool, St. Nicholas Park, and other public plazas are beloved by athletes of all ages.WHAT NOT TO EXPECT:A bar-driven, late-night party scene. In Harlem, weekend dining and coffee culture are as significant as the nightlife scene. Live jazz brunches at venues like Harlem Tavern and Ginnys Supper Club attract diners with an inventive cocktail menu and music mix. Locals appreciate the abundance of cozy dining spots and lowkey lounges and wine bars that are popular here.THE MARKET:Affordable nineteenth-century apartments and brownstones are becoming more competitive, and new developments are popping up throughout the neighborhood. Charming, historic brownstones and walk-ups are relatively abundant, especially from 125th to 145th streets. Those in search of more modern digs will find them closer to ma
