If you love music then you must love the Harlem place too. It is believed to be the place where the greatest music genre as Rap, R&B, Jazz, Swing and Hip Hop has taken birth. Harlem is a large neighborhood in New York at the northern section of Manhattan. It is also known as uptown by the local residents and it stretches from the East river to the river Hudson between 155th street. The central Harlem or the center of Harlem holds many well known spots of New York such as the 5th avenue on the east, Morningside park on the west, central park on the south and the Harlem river to its north side.
The Harlem place has a rich history and has a huge contribution in making New York what it has become now. The foundation was laid as a Dutch village in the 17th century. The village progressed and turned into a town of rich people but was soon struck by the economic crunch then. It was auctioned in pieces to the African refugees. This made Harlem a place of neglect and it turned into shanty towns until in the 19th century the authorities started taking notice of it and started developing it. After that Harlem started progressing and became a good contributor to the development of New York. Harlem has undergone many cycles of boom and bust and has hosted many people of different races and religions. It can be easily witnessed by the many different ancient buildings in the area which represent the different cultures of people who once inhabited the neighborhood.
Today Harlem is one of the best and the most expensive places in New York. Harlem has always been the trend setter in New York.
