Stretching from the East River to the Hudson River is the neighborhood known as Harlem. This area has grown more since 2000 than during any decade since the 1940s.
Harlem is home to over 400 churches and to the well-known Apollo Theater, which opened on 125th Street in 1934. This neighborhood is filled with musicians, writers, actors and theater companies. A strong sense of community is felt within this neighborhood.
