Destination guide

Harlem – multicultural Manhattan

Located just a short stroll north of sprawling Central Park, Harlem's vibrantly multicultural population is reflected in a food scene that runs the gamut from Southern-style soul food to upscale spins on fiery West African cuisine. With a magnificent musical heritage encompassing everything from gospel to hip-hop, the district remains one of the best spots in town to catch live performances by the hottest new artists. Pick a Harlem vacation rental for your next city break and you'll also be within easy reach of the designer boutiques of 5th Avenue and the bright lights of Broadway.

Things to do

Harlem's hidden cultural gems

Before you make a beeline for NYC's obvious blockbuster attractions, check out some of the under-the-radar gems within easy walking distance of your Harlem vacation rental. The Cathedral of Saint John the Divine is one of the world's largest Christian churches, which blends Byzantine-Romanesque and Gothic Revival styles to astonishing effect. The Studio Museum in Harlem is a thriving local cultural institution devoted to celebrating artists of African descent and work inspired by black culture. For evening entertainment, look no further than the legendary Apollo Theater, launchpad for the careers of everyone from The Jackson 5 to Mariah Carey.


Decadent days and hedonistic Harlem nights

Tantalise your taste buds with a Harlem food tour. Several local companies offer popular guided experiences, but it's just as easy to tailor your own gastronomic route. Over the course of a single day you could feast on deep-filled Puerto Rican empanadas, fiery Mexican tacos and fried chicken with fluffy buttermilk waffles. Continue the self-indulgence with a trawl of the neighborhood's legendary jazz clubs, where you can savour expertly mixed cocktails whilst getting down to some smooth grooves. After a leisurely lie-in, you could easily while away the whole day perusing Harlem's quirky boutiques and discount designer fashion outlets.


Hazy summer days in Harlem

With a seemingly endless array of things to see and do in and around the neighborhood, Harlem vacation rentals are in high demand at all times of year. Summer days are typically long, hot and sunny, although bear in mind that thunderstorms and high humidity are also possible. For an action-packed sightseeing break, you may find the slightly milder temperatures of late spring or early fall more agreeable. Manhattan is a festive wonderland in the run-up to Christmas, even more so when it snows, but extreme cold spells are a possibility throughout winter.

Natural features

Get back to nature in Central Park

With lush manicured lawns, verdant woodlands and radiant lakes to explore, New York's biggest park is the perfect place to recharge the batteries. Wander down any of its pristine walking trails, and you might catch a glimpse of tweeting songbirds or chattering gray squirrels. For guaranteed wildlife sightings, swing by Central Park Zoo. Here you can get up close and personal with everything from sleek spotted snow leopards to waddling sea lions.
