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

Below is a snapshot of key indicators for Harlem’s real estate market, courtesy of Trulia.com.  Click here for additional details.

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.

If you are thinking about living in Harlem, please check out the seminal work about Harlem, featured below.

 

 

 




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’s St. John the Divine Campus Could be Landmarked

The Cathedral of St. John the Divine could become a landmark under a deal between the church, Community Board 9 and developers of a new 14-story building set to be built alongside the cathedral.

Community Board 9 approved a resolution asking  the Landmarks Preservation Commission to landmark the entire cathedral campus with an exception for a 14-story, 428-unit apartment building.  Revenue from that project will fund church repairs, upgrades and ongoing operations.  The 121-year-old  cathedral is in need of millions of dollars in repairs and upgrades.

Previously the church leased land on 110th Street and Morningside Avenue to the developers who built Avalon Morningside Park, a 20-story luxury apartment building, in 2007 that includes 20 percent affordable housing.

The area from the church eastward towards Frederick Douglass Circle is part of what is known as “Gateway To Harlem”, which continues to undergo dramatic change, and into what some are now calling SOHA (South Harlem).
