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.
