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.
