The legendary borough of Harlem has been a famous name in New York City since the 1920s, when it was dubbed the 'black capital of the world'. Today Harlem is an increasingly gentrified area of classic brownstone townhouses, iconic jazz clubs, churches, cultural centers, cocktail lounges, and soul food restaurants.

Dr Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard (125th Street) is Harlem’s main street. The neighborhood's slew of sights include the Apollo Theater, Studio Museum, Cathedral of St John the Divine, Striver's Row, and Astor Row townhouses and the Museum of the City of New York.

Take a tour led by a local, catch amateur night at the Apollo Theatre on Wednesdays, order up some soul food at Sylvia's on Lennox Avenue, or listen to the glorious sound of full-throated gospel at the Abyssinian Baptist Church on Sundays.

Practical Info

Bordered by the Hudson and East rivers, Harlem runs from the northern edge of Central Park all the way up to Washington Heights. There are subway stations on 125th Street.
