Harlem New York was settled in the 1600s. Harlem is full of history, unique architecture, and mixed cultures. Harlem occupies northern Manhattan Island. The boundaries of Harlem are between 155th street and East 96th. Harlem is to the east of Central Park. Many Harlem residents enjoy listening to music and watching shows at The Apollo Theatre and the Theatre of Harlem. Harlem has developed a great reputation for having amazing food, flashy clubs, and good music, particularly jazz. The jazz music attracts people from all over New York. Harlem became a mostly black community soon after World War I due to many African Americans moving up from the southern states. Harlem New York is still known today as a mostly black community. New Yorkers came flocking to Harlem in the early 1900s due to electric railways and booming properties. Most of the clubs in Harlem attract the midtown caucasian crowd of young men and women as well as some of the Harlem locals. The clubs come alive at night with the smell of good food in the air and jazz at your ears.
