Wonderful architecture, beautifully preserved. Worth a detour to walk up and down. However, not much signage to provide information. Supply your own.

Amazing row houses designed by leading architects of the time for low income needs. If you are interested in buildings and architecture, stop by and walk the neighborhood. By "the Seinfeld restaurant".

We went to Striver's row to see where legendary African-Ameircnas lived during Harlem's heyday. Many of the these buildings are on the National Historical landmarks, yet there are no historical markers or plaques indicating this.

we saw this on a sunny day and loved the sense of history that being there brought. we got quite a different sense of manhattan away from the 5th avenue crowds and the crush of tourists at all the major sites.

As a hub of African American culture, Harlem has
played a vital role in the history of New York City.
Today, the neighbourhood is as vibrant as ever as new
businesses and developments go up next to local
institutions. The heart of the neighbourhood is
bustling 125th Street, where street vendors and
historic landmarks like the Apollo Theater mingle with
big-name stores. Turn down almost any corner, and
