Harlem Reviews

301 reviews
All Categories
It is a beautiful, historical neighborhood, even under the pressures of gentrafication. There is so much culture in the unique food, art, people, shops and music you encounter while just walking down the street or enjoying the activities the area has to offer. It also has a distinctly hip yet community-oriented feel. I believe if more of the newcomers to this neighborhood could invest their dollars in the people and economic growth of the neighborhood, and not so much the trendy changes that follow them, the growing diversity would work to enrich as opposed to stamp out the beauty that is only found in Harlem!
Review Harlem
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.
