• 155th Street to 96th Street | Manhattan, NY
Located within the borough of Manhattan, Harlem has traditionally been an African-American neighborhood since the 1920s, but it was originally settled as a Dutch village in 1658. Harlem has had its challenges economically affecting the standard of living of area residents but since 1995, the area has been in the process of gentrification. Its rich heritage and culture can today be observed at a number of landmarks that include the Apollo Theater, Cotton Club, Duke Ellington Circle, El Museo Del Barrio (in Spanish Harlem), Strivers' Row (Georgian and neo-Italian homes) and Studio Museum in Harlem - to mention only a few. Harlem is located just north of Central Park.
