Uptown, from 110th Street to 155th Street, from the East River to Manhattan and St. Nicholas Avenues.
Harlem is enjoying a new renaissance — an explosion of development. Harlem residents are also finding a new range of shopping options, as 125th Street, once known for its independent bazaars that offered anything and everything for sale, is now also home to uptown sites for chains such as Disney, HandM, and Old Navy. There’s easy access to retail from such beautiful architectural enclaves as Harlem’s “Striver’s Row,” which features townhouses — many with multiple fireplaces and to-die-for molding — designed by the famous firm of McKim, Mead and White.
