If there’s any neighborhood that has experienced a real estate transformation in New York, it’s Harlem.

Beautifully renovated townhouses are slowly replacing older buildings. And people who at one point wouldn’t have dared to go above 125th Street now not only go up there, but choose to live there for the space, affordable rent, culture and neighborly vibe.

Descriptions of 61 Lenox Ave

And with famous places like The Apollo Theater and Cotton Club, both of which helped launch the careers of such comedians as Eddie Murphy and Chris Rock, Harlem has long been a center for the arts, restaurants and exciting nightlife options. Spanning from the Hudson River to the East River, Harlem’s southern boundary is 110th Street west of 5th Ave and 120th Street east of 5th Ave, while the northern border lies at 155th Street. An iconic Manhattan neighborhood, Harlem is rich in both culture and history, and that history is evident in a variety of landmarks. Classic brownstones can be found throughout, and these architectural gems speak to the neighborhood’s proud history. This gem is conveniently located two blocks from an express subway stop and steps to Central Park. Harlem has in recent years become more diverse but has still retained its neighborhood feel. The renovated building has an elevator and secured entry. Justin DiGiulio (Mar 2014)
