One of the biggest draws of this neighborhood is the booming food scene. A walk down Frederick Douglass Boulevard begtween 110th and 125th streets will give you a good idea of the thriving restaurants that attract foodies, tourists and curious New Yorkers alike.
Similarly to Central Harlem, South Harlem is also know for its friendly residents. People say good morning and good evening, and generally check-in with each other.
Friendly Neighborhood Feel
Perhaps one of the biggest draws of this northern Manhattan neighborhood is the abundant access to outdoor space and parks. The obvious access point is the northern section of Central Park, which is home to the Harlem Meer nature preserve, The Blockhouse historical landmark, and the Lasker Rink which is a great place to ice skate in the winter.
Not feeling historical landmarks and ice-skating rinks, don't fret--there's also Morningside Park which runs parallel to Manhattan Ave from 110th St. up to 123rd St. Here you'll find lush greenery dotted with fitness paths, baseball fields, playgrounds, dog-friendly areas and a weekly market!
Last but not least, you have Marcus Garvey Park which houses a community center, 2 playgrounds, drawbridges, an outdoor pool, and the Richard Rodgers Amphitheater which hosts a slew of summer concerts.
