The extension of Manhattan that holds the most culture that these buildings walls could ever have seen. From the Renaissance to the riots, so much history of this area can never be told in a short blog post. I lived on 143rd and broadway when I first officially moved up to New York City, and there is something about it I miss everyday. Legends call Harlem home and its a part of the city that people have seen the most change. You'll always hear that "Harlem is not like it used to be, it's changed so much." Some say it is for the bad, some say it's for the good; but in all, hopefully it can be a place I call home again.
Harlem, I thank you.
