Harlem

Interesting
Though only a fraction of the city's African-American population still lives in Harlem, the neighbourhood continues to nurture its history as a fulcrum of African-American culture, from the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s, which saw the emergence of this identity. The Apollo Theatre, legendary for its all-black revues of the 1930s, still puts on varied shows. The streets are lined with brownstones, slowly being renovated, churches and a handful of renowned institutions.
