East Harlem is Fantastic!
Growing up in Queens, we never went to Harlem. It was always the scary place north of Manhattan that no one spoke about, except as a place to "not end up accidentally".
Anyway, I've been spending some time up there lately and have made some SHOCKING discoveries!
- People actually live there
- There are many nice shops and restaurants
- The houses there are very, very nice. Big and roomy, you won't find whole-floor apartments converted into 9 studios
- Some people even own whole brownstones.
