Uptown, from 110th Street to the Harlem River, from 5th Avenue to St. Nicholas Avenues.
Harlem is enjoying a new renaissance — an explosion of new development. Harlem residents are also finding a new range of shopping options, as 125th Street, once known for its independent bazaars that offered anything and everything for sale, is now also home to Uptown sites for chains. Beautiful architectural enclaves feature townhouses — many with multiple fireplaces and gorgeous molding — designed by the famous firm of McKim, Mead and White.
