Harlem, New York City

This historical New York neighborhood Harlem is most famous for the artistic achievements of its "Harlem Renaissance." Visit the many neighborhood landmarks listed on the National Register of Historic Places, see live music or show, or stop into a local restaurant or shop to experience a bit of the area's history and changing culture. Located in the northern part of the Manhattan borough, Harlem was originally a Dutch village. Over the years, it became predominantly African American. In the 1920s and 1930s, a period known as the "Harlem Renaissance," members of the neighborhood produced an abundance of artistic content, particularly music and writing.
