Harlem (USA) ... neighborhood in the New York City borough of Manhattan, which started in 1658 but began to become a more well known bourough during the Harlem Renaissance. After being associated for much of the twentieth century with black culture, but also crime and poverty, it is now experiencing a social and economic renaissance. Harlem stretches from the East River to the Hudson River between 155th Street — where it meets Washington Heights — to a ragged border along the south. Central Harlem begins at 110th Street, at the northern boundary of Central Park; Spanish Harlem extends east Harlem's boundaries south to 96th Street, while in the west it begins north of Morningside Heights, which gives an irregular border west of Morningside Avenue. Harlem's boundaries have changed over the years; as Ralph Ellison observed: "Wherever Negroes live uptown is considered Harlem.""

Like most people out there I didn't think Harlem had a lot to offer a New York City traveller - How wrong was I? On a recent tour of the neighbourhood I was treated to the biggest surprise of all my travels. Harlem is beautiful! The buildings are stunning - from the gothic cathedral to the old style housing. The people are friendly, they are genuinely interested in you and are proud to show you their neighbourhood. The streets are quiet - particularly on a Sunday morning, if they're not in church you'll find the people of Harlem in bed! Talking of church - take a step inside one of the famous Harlem Gospel churches and you'll see how exciting God really . Read the complete review
