Harlem is currently the only neighborhood in Manhattan that is vibing on a higher frequency than any other neighborhood in the city. While the neighborhood is evolving, it has not been gentrified to the point that its connection to the past is completely erased like some other neighborhoods [read: Meatpacking District]. The improvement in services and the addition of new housing stock is unique for a changing neighborhood, in the sense that the core housing stock (the illustrious Harlem brownstones) are a key and identifiable differentiator from most other neighborhoods in the city. Today, the face of Harlem consists of brownstones, condos, coops and HDFC-mixed properties. This lends itself to a diverse group of people from all walks of life that give meaning to this city being a true melting point.
