Although nothing is Compared to Mid-Town Manhattan, Harlem is definitely a fantastic option if you want to know the Real New York. I strongly recommend to take Contrasts NY tour to visit Harlem, Bronx & Queens and experiment a real taste of NY.

Harlem is a great place. Just traveling the distance of 125th Street, there is so much business happening here. I would say, it's a clone of 34th Street. There is so much history here. Great restaurants too. Harlem is accessible by bus, subway, and Metro...More

Yes.. you need to walk through Harlem ( go on a walking tour) and learn about it's history. If only the streets could tell their stories. Visit a restaurant for authentic soul food and jazz singers.

According to rumours Harlem used to be a bit dangerous. I would say that people are very friendly always willing to help... no danger...

Harlem
As a hub of African American culture, Harlem has
played a vital role in the history of New York City.
Today, the neighbourhood is as vibrant as ever as new
businesses and developments go up next to local

bustling 125th Street, where street vendors and

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