I took these photos after a class I’m taking in Harlem (mostly along Frederick Douglass blvd between 125th and 119th Street). Harlem has gone through some major changes in the last few decades. From wikipedia:
New York’s revival in the late 20th century has led to renewal in Harlem as well. By 1995, Harlem was experiencing social and economic gentrification. Though the percentage of residents who are black peaked in 1950, the area remains predominantly black.
I had a chance to walk around and soak in some of the life in the community. It was great. Enjoy the photos!
