Harlem

" A must for everyone who loves music, soul food, and African-American culture. Harlem is a neighborhood with soul! "

Ted Steinebach, our local from time to momo New York

Formerly a farming town, named for the Dutch city of Haarlem, this area has developed into the African-American heart of New York City. A melting pot of different cultures, influences and styles, Harlem is currently one of the city's hippest yet most affordable neighborhoods. All around, the wonderful sounds of jazz music can be heard, and the streets are filled with colorful murals and equally colorful characters. An abundance of new restaurants and original coffee houses attracts tourists with a sense of adventure, who enjoy exploring areas off the beaten path. Harlem is multifaceted and will be kind to your wallet too.
