Harlem ApartmentsCommunity ForumAre there any nice places in Harlem to rent?
Are there any nice places in Harlem to rent? Just wondering. Don't get insulted, but the Harlem I've always known(from movies and tv) depicts it as a less than desirable place to live. So, tell me.
Yes Harlem has tons of new and renovated buildings. Harlem is what I would consider to be an up and coming neighborhood. It all depends on what aspect of an apartment search is a priority to you.
Yes Harlem has had a major renovation in certain areas as of late, so good deals on new development apts too..don't rule this area out based on what you've seen in the media, TV, Films. President Clinton has a office there.
Absolutely. There are always the good and bad of a neighborhood. Harlem has so much history, culture, entertainment, parks. Today's Harlem represents change; good change. What are you looking for specifically?
Yes there are many places in Harlem to rent that are very lovely. All you need is the right tour guide to get you to the right type of property, whether that is a Brownstone upstairs rental, a luxury building with all of the latest amenities or a walk up, Harlem has everything to offer for the concerning renter.
You might want to consider the movies that you may have seen are dated. I would suggest you go and take a look around for yourself. choose a couple of areas, because Harlem is big and just spend the day walking around various parts of Harlem. You have West Harlem East Harlem (Spanish Harlem) and Central Harlem.
The word nice is subjective, as is any other word you may use to describe an area. What one considers nice is a personal thing.
Movies are just movies. Harlem is one of the most progressive areas in the city. White people live in Harlem now, and occupy many brownstones, and the more expensive apartments. Where the poor have been renovated out of their apartments and the rents have sky rocketed, The middle class from downtown Manhattan have taken advantage of the lower rents for them ($1700 average in Harlem as oppose to $3500 downtown), while it is a higher rent for the old tenants (used to pay $700 and now expected to pay $1700,) Harlem 's role and playground is now reversing itself. HARLEM is a mix bag, and it looks great up there!!!! That's why every company is trying to get a piece of the pie...
