It is that time of year where New York Magazine profiles some of the upcoming neighborhoods for 2011. In this week’s edition (April 3), they list 20 of The Next Big Neighborhoods in New York City and two Harlem sections made the list!

A big congrats to Marcus Garvey Park. ┬áThis area located in Central Harlem was ranked fourth out of 20.┬áNYMag says Marcus Garvey Park “is undergoing a several million dollar renovation, including smoothed-out sidewalks and the transformation of its existing bandshell into a state-of-the-art amphitheater.” In addition to park renovations, several buildings have sprung up, such as 5th on the Park, located at Fifth Avenue and 120th Street; and “the recently constructed Windows on 123, a pair of buildings graced with limestone-balconied apartments and full-floor lofts.”

Hamilton Heights located in West Harlem, finishes out the list placing 20th on the list.

Another notable mention, is Manhattan Valley, which is right below Harlem on the Westside. They were ranked second out of 20.

I search a lot of various sites about my Harlem community both for play and work. I stumbled across what I think is an extremely different real estate site and I wanted to share it with you: www.aqueductcourt.com. Check it out!

Is this the coolest or what? They make Harlem’s Hamilton Heights seem like one might be moving to Harry Potter land or Lord of the Rings! So cool in my view! What do you think?
