    Harlem suffered more than most neighborhoods when the market crashed in 2008 but has come back with so much energy. There are many new developments on the market and, despite rising prices, it is still a bargain. The infrastructure has blossomed and the neighborhoods are bustling. Sylvia's world famous soul food is bigger than ever and is joined by new trendy restaurants that draw a very diverse crowd. Red Rooster is good for comfort food and people watching. Chez Lucienne, next door, is a French restaurant where I go when I need my cholesterol brunch fix of eggs hollandaise with smoked salmon on a potato pancake. One of my favorite venues in Harlem is The Maysles Documentary Center for lectures and screenings of independent films.

    Harlem has undergone a huge transformation in the past 5-10 years. New developments have brought much needed housing and local services to the neighborhood. If you are looking for a good deal in Manhattan it is an area definitely worth a look.
