Harlem contains some magnificent buildings with fine, original architectural features, and remains one area of Manhattan where you can find working fireplaces, original moldings and even a driveway for reasonable prices. It is also home to the world-famous Columbia University, located around 125th Street, which gives the neighborhood a cutting intellectual edge. There is an excellent subway and bus transportation system, including express services to lower Manhattan.
Harlem landmarks include the legendary Apollo Theater, where Showtime at the Apollo films every Saturday night and legendary African American comedians, like Chris Rock, perform, Hotel Theresa, Langston Hughes House, James Bailey House, Lenox Lounge, La Marqueta, Morningside Park, St. Martin’s Episcopal Church (the former Trinity Church), and Sylvia’s Soul Food, a restaurant that has become a landmark in its own right.
