Central Harlem, which includes the sub-neighborhoods of Mount Morris, Strivers’ Row and Astor Row, is a neighborhood facing a new wave of gentrification. Traditionally a major African American residential, cultural and business center, Harlem saw an influx of artistic and professional works during the Harlem Renaissance in the 1920s and 1930s. However, the Great Depression caused a significant increase in crime and poverty rates in the neighborhood, causing a major drop in population and real estate prices. Since the late 1990s, Central Harlem has experienced social and economic gentrification, spurred by fierce crime fighting and retail development efforts along West 125th Street and Frederick Douglass Boulevard. Although unemployment and crime rates in Harlem remain higher than the New York City average and public education has considerable room for improvement, real estate in the area is booming. Amenity-stocked condos, brownstones and starter apartments at reasonable prices are attracting a more affluent crowd to the neighborhood. Central Harlem is experiencing a new renaissance, this time defined by gentrification, and a growing population of residents committed to building a vibrant community.
