Description
Central Harlem is located between 110th and 155th streets in Lower Manhattan. It is home to such cultural fixtures as the world famous Apollo Theatre, Lenox Lounge, Studio Museum of Harlem, Sylvia's Soul Food restaurant, and many prewar homes with classic architectural details.

It is bound by Harlem River to the north, Fifth Avenue binds Central Harlem to the east, 110th Street to the South, and Morningside Park, Saint Nicholas and Edgecombe Avenues to the west.

Central Harlem has seen many changes since the early 20th Century. Back in the 1920s and 1930s, there was the Harlem Renaissance that introduced the world to many great jazz musicians, visual artists, and writers whose works would go down as a part of American history.

In recent years, the area has experienced a huge wave of gentrification after real estate prices dropped tremendously in the late 1980s. Although crime rates in Central Harlem remain higher than the New York City average, the real estate market here is still booming. This includes new condos loaded with wonderful features and amenities, brownstones and renovated apartments at reasonable prices.

These days, this new wave of prosperity combines the classic Central Harlem with a new culture that is made up of young, affluent professionals who make this neighborhood diverse and safer than in previous years. While the prices are affordable for many, some parts that are not ideal for nighttime strolls. Those with families may want to look at the local schools closely before making a final decision.

125th Street is well known for its shopping experience as it has many independent boutiques, restaurants, and entertainment venues to be enjoyed by all. Pathmark Supermarket is the first major retail development in 30 years to come to Central Harlem. Also, a growing culinary scene includes the popular Red Rooster.

Central Harlem has ample public transportation, which include the IRT Lenox/Broadway lines, IRT Lexington Avenue and many bus routes. There are also many private car services.

This neighborhood is close to Central Park as well as Marcus Garvey Park, which offers many concerts and events on its 20 acres. The Charlie Parker Jazz Festival is a yearly festival that brings jazz lovers of all ages together.
