Harlem

Famous as the site of the 1920s renaissance of African American culture, historic Harlem real estate offers a vibrant neighborhood currently undergoing a second renaissance in commerce, culture, property redevelopment and historic preservation. At the northern tip of Central Park, the neighborhood stretches from 116th Street to the Harlem River. Harlem real estate includes a wealth of magnificently detailed 19th-century brownstones and spacious prewar buildings. The St. Nicholas Historic District is notable for the stately 19th-century townhouses of Striver's Row, historically named as a reference to its upwardly mobile residents, with other grand townhouses in Hamilton Heights. A legendary landmark, the Apollo Theater has hosted performances by such luminaries as Count Basie, Duke Ellington and Bessie Smith. The neighborhood also teems with an extraordinary variety of shops, markets, restaurants and cafes.
