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".

As a hub of African American culture, Harlem has
played a vital role in the history of New York City.

big-name stores. Turn down almost any corner, and
