Harlem Reviews

266 reviews
All Categories
Harlem is a very vibrant neighborhood. A dynamic atmosphere is spread around communal gathering, street event/concert, a great access to transportation, growing food amenities, and a well defined identity! . A lot of potential is existing, and a civic progressive movement keeps nurturing the proud and familial atmosphere that was initially present at the biggest neighborhood of New york. Cleaner street, more flowers/plants, a larger diversity of food (more vegetable orientated food), more promotion of the local events (with board, or panel), a better display of landmark (some streets/monuments are historically recognized but not advertised) and education of the neighborhood (business owner, inhabitant, commuter) would give back the pride that the neighborhood deserve.
I LOVE THIS TOWN SOOOOO MUCH! It is where I grew up. It's what gave me a lot of my edge . It's pushed me to my limits in regards to expanding my territory. I love this place. It's filled with REALLY delicious food, fun places to hang out for nightlife, and pretty okay people. The real estate is really booming as many people are looking to Harlem as a place to live now, and one thing that cannot be beat is the location! It's literally 30 minutes away from everything in Manhattan. I love it! I believe everyone should visit Harlem at least once in their lives.
I love ❤️ Harlem because now it's more diversity. I been lived for 12 years in Harlem. Before white peoples was scared of pass around the neighborhood. The tourism was poor. Now everything is better in Harlem. People the different nationalities can to live here. The tourism industry is more in Harlem thank you to the new restaurants, the history about the old buildings construction, the stores and malls and also, the police effort to maintain the community appear looking safe and cleaned. People the other countries want to now about the black history. I don't want to change nothing about my community because Harlem is moving forward to the future to be look like "the black Times Square" please came to Harlem to enjoy a good multicultural educator day and shopping thing from Africa America to Hispanic community. Harlem is divided by Spanish Harlem and black Harlem. Came! Came! Came to now about two culture and one place.
