As a hub of African American culture, Harlem has
played a vital role in the history of New York City.
Today, the neighbourhood is as vibrant as ever as new
businesses and developments go up next to local
institutions. The heart of the neighbourhood is
bustling 125th Street, where street vendors and
historic landmarks like the Apollo Theater mingle with
big-name stores. Turn down almost any corner, and

Harlem has become very upscale and is completely safe. I would not worry.
What bus could I take from your train station to Harlem. I want to spend the day there on 8/20/16. I guess I could even take the trains with directions. Can you help me out.
