Uptown, from 110th Street to the Harlem River, from 5th Avenue to St. Nicholas Avenues.
Harlem is enjoying a new renaissance — an explosion of new development. Harlem residents are also finding a new range of shopping options, as 125th Street, once known for its independent bazaars that offered anything and everything for sale, is now also home to Uptown sites for chains. Beautiful architectural enclaves feature townhouses — many with multiple fireplaces and gorgeous molding — designed by the famous firm of McKim, Mead and White.
For play, Marcus Garvey Park offers Harlemites twenty acres playgrounds, a swimming pool as well as plays and concerts in the park’s amphitheater. It is also home to the city’s Charlie Parker Jazz Festival. You can catch the next star at amateur night at Harlem’s landmark Apollo Theater, a renowned institution which launched the careers of Ella Fitzgerald, James Brown, and Lauryn Hill. From its inception, Harlem has kept a cadence like no other. Best known for its role in creating the 1920s cultural movement, the Harlem Renaissance, the neighborhood still celebrates its African American roots and vibrant culture. From the galleries of its iconic theatres to the dusky insides of its monumental jazz clubs, Harlem’s influential rhythm permeates the perservering neighborhood. Having reinvented itself many times over, its inimitable beat continues to attract attention.
