Harlem is perhaps the most famous, iconic neighborhood in the United States. A bastion of freedom and the capital of Black America, Harlem's twentieth century renaissance changed our arts, culture, and politics forever. But this is only one of the many chapters in a wonderfully rich and varied history. In Harlem, historian Jonathan Gill presents the first complete chronicle of this remarkable place.

From Henry Hudson's first contact with native Harlemites, through Harlem's years as a colonial outpost on the edge of the known world, Gill traces the neighborhood's story, marshaling a tremendous wealth of detail and a host of fascinating figures from George Washington to Langston Hughes. Harlem was an agricultural center under British rule and the site of a key early battle in the Revolutionary War. Later, wealthy elites including Alexander Hamilton built great estates there for entertainment and respite from the epidemics ravaging downtown. In the nineteenth century, transportation urbanized Harlem and brought waves of immigrants from Germany, Italy, Ireland, and elsewhere. Harlem's mix of cultures, extraordinary wealth and extreme poverty was electrifying and explosive.

Extensively researched, impressively synthesized, eminently readable, and overflowing with captivating characters, Harlem is an ambitious, sweeping history, and an impressive achievement.

Harlem Real Estate Market Key Indicators as of Sun Aug 17 2014

Our humble assessment:  For those seeking value on “the island” (of Manhattan that is) Harlem continues to sizzle.  South Harlem remains desirable and as such continues to become more expensive.  However Harlem is huge.  And people are curious about the buzz.  So they are exploring new markets in Harlem.  Some of our current favorites include but are not limited to: West Harlem including South Harlem (aka SOHA, Harlem Restaurant Row) from 125th to 145th, Central Harlem from 110th to 135th, and East Harlem from 96th to 125th.

Sundae Sermon This Sunday St. Nicholas Park

sundae sermon

Sundae Sermon is back this Sunday in Harlem!

Hosted by Bevy Smith (Bravo Fashion Queens).

Featuring a special performance by the cast of Mighty Real showcasing the life of dance music’s one and only Sylvester.  And of course music by our favorite DJ Stormin’ Norman and his friends.

For those of you not familiar with Sylvester, know this.  On September 20, 2004, Sylvester’s anthem record, “You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real),” was inducted into the Dance Music Hall of Fame. A year later, on September 19, 2005, Sylvester himself was inducted into the Dance Music Hall of Fame for his achievement as an artist.  An activist who campaigned against the spread of HIV/AIDS, Sylvester died from complications arising from the virus in 1988.  HOWEVER – his trailblazing style and his love of life and music lives on in events like Sundae Sermon.  Which is one of the many reasons why Sundae Sermon matters.

We hope the community’s love for this event  - recently featured in a leading NYC publication thanks to Michael Feeney,  helped in some small way to tip the scales in the event’s favor.

AMEN!
