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.

Located just moments to plenty of shopping, dinning and entertainment on 45th Street, recreational activities at Riverbank State Park, as well as express trains getting you downtown in 15 minutes. Krista Warren (Aug 2014)
This charming neighborhood has many angled streets that disrupt the grid and smaller buildings that give many sections an open, spacious feel not found in many other Manhattan neighborhoods. The quiet spot is principally known for City College on 137th Street, which is notable for its remarkable gothic architecture and academic excellence. Although it requires a commute to reach this far-uptown escape, the neighborhood's community feel and plainspoken demeanor make up for the distance. Justin DiGiulio (Aug 2014)
Easy access to shopping Located 1 block from famed coffee shops, local gym, Various Supermarkets, Banks, Arts Center and even a local seasonal pool. Darius Talley (Aug 2010)
