Harlem has become synonymous with integral movements in music, literature, dance and art. From Minton’s and the Cotton Club to the infamous Apollo Theater, Harlem is home to countless venues, some with roots that reach back to the Roaring 20s. Flanked east and west by the Hudson and Harlem Rivers, and running from 110th Street to 155th Street, Harlem is bordered by the Washington Heights and Morningside Heights (home to Columbia University) neighborhoods.
While the history of Harlem is exciting in itself, one can’t help but notice an exciting wave of change on its main streets. Harlem is rewriting history with every celebrity chef that carves out new digs and with every trendy new storefront that throws open their doors. The rich history of Harlem is reflected through a wealth of museums, walking tours and restaurants, each catering to a different background or interest.
With so much to do in Harlem, it's hard to believe you'll ever have to leave. However, should you ever want to visit Midtown, FiDi or beyond, Harlem is extremely well connected.
