So last Friday I went to Harlem. I was just having a blast taking photos that I took alot. Most of these photos are worth of posting. The streets I covered were anything below 125th street to 110th street. This area is full of beautiful classic architecture plus is currently having a construction boom! Enjoy the tour! :)

Harlem

A Mecca for African-American culture and life for more than a century, Harlem started out as Nieuw Haarlem, a prosperous Dutch farming settlement. By the turn of the 20th century, black New Yorkers started moving uptown into Harlem's apartment buildings and town houses. The neighborhood prospered and by the 1920s, Harlem had become the most famous black community in the United States, perhaps in the whole world. The Harlem Renaissance, generally regarded as occuring between 1919 and 1929, was Harlem's golden era, when local writers such as Zora Neale Hurston, W.E.B. DuBois, Langston Hughes, and Ralph Ellison achieved literary recognition. The Depression hit hard here, but happily, today the neighborhood is well on the way to new glory days: Young people and families are moving into the newly restored brownstone and limestone buildings, and the combination of architectural treasures, crackling vitality (even Bill Clinton chose Harlem for his post-presidential office!), great music and culture, and honest-to-goodness, lip-smacking soul food make Harlem a must-see destination. Harlem is safe to explore on your own but there are a number of tour companies that will happily show you around.

This is outstanding!

Reminds me of Buttes-Chaumont, Paris.

Is that natural landscape or man-made? An artificial waterfall?

A little info, please.

Oh, I know where it is, but I don't know if the waterfall was put there by God or man.

From http://jschumacher.typepad.com/joe/morningside_park/index.html:

Last year I wrote about the tiny waterfall in Morningside Park. This is the big waterfall. It is not a natural waterfall. Far from it. The pond is not natural either. It is a remnant of Columbia's infamous attempt to build a gym in the park. That action led to the student takeover of the campus in 1968. The hole in the ground was converted to the pond and waterfall about 15 years ago.

Those are beautiful photos. Let me guess, you need to be pulling down 2.5M/year to just barely make it over the poverty line there right?:)
