It's definitely worth a visit. Harlem is such an amazing area and you really do need to try the soul food. I had the chicken and waffle. OK, it wasn't to my taste - a very odd combination - but the chicken was so moist...More

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
historic landmarks like the Apollo Theater mingle with
big-name stores. Turn down almost any corner, and
