Harlem Real Estate Market Overview

Neighborhood thoroughfares Malcolm X, Adam Clayton Powell, and Martin Luther King Jr. boulevards are Civil Rights-era touchstones, but Harlem's history and present day make it one of New York's most diverse places to live, work, and play. From summertime festivals to late-night jazz haunts like Minton's and juke joints like Paris Blues, there is no "typical" in Harlem. And that's just wh...y residents love it. Tourists and citywide residents alike flock here come weekends for pickup basketball games, once-in-a-lifetime Apollo Theater shows, and an increasingly popular restaurant scene that has room for old-school soul food go-tos Sylvia's and Amy Ruth's and sunny-weather patios like Harlem Tavern and celeb-chef-helmed newcomer Red Rooster.View more
