Harlem is still Harlem. Though it's been cleaned up a bit over the years and it's getting less and less affordable to live in the city it is still not the safest place to wonder around in New York City.Recommended for:Local Culture

Like Hells Kitchen, Harlem is one of New York's most authentic districts. During the 80's this was no man's land but today more and more people head uptown to go shopping or wander the northern regions of the park. The buildings are gorgeous turn of the century structures built when this was an up and coming neighborhood. The Apollo Theater is a landmark that nods to a glorious past that includes the Jazz Age and the Civil Rights movement.

I thought I would never go to Harlem but here I was spending an afternoon, evening, and overnight up around 148th street. Recently my nephew and my friend moved up there and I wondered what it was all about. There is a vibrancy here that revolves around a lot of street life. People are always out and about and there is a neighborly feeling. I had wonderful Sierra Leone food and thoroughly enjoyed the cultural sites.

I LOVE Harlem....great restaurants (of course my 2 favorites must-go's -- a southern soul food restaurant and a Mexican place which is more authentic and an experience than anything I've had in Mexico -- I can't even remember), great historical sites, the Apolllo theater, beauty and culture. One of few places in New York that hasn't been completely overrun by trendy hipster 'gentrification' (an awful word if you ask me), with the exception perhaps of the neighborhood where Clinton keeps his office....I bet many residents dying to say to him "Shalom Chaver" -- perhaps a bad joke, but I'm bitter ;)
