    If you like vintage-style places with lots of character, The Harlem Flophouse is the place you're looking for! It is more like a house than a hotel, and that's what we liked about it. The architecture is interesting in itself (I've never seen that many...More

    As a hub of African American culture, Harlem has
    played a vital role in the history of New York City.
    Today, the neighbourhood is as vibrant as ever as new
    businesses and developments go up next to local
    institutions. The heart of the neighbourhood is
    bustling 125th Street, where street vendors and
    historic landmarks like the Apollo Theater mingle with
    big-name stores. Turn down almost any corner, and
