At the height of the Harlem Renaissance, many of the era's leading intellectuals and artists lived in prewar brownstones that would eventually come to define the neighborhood. However, a real estate renaissance is now underway as eye-catching new buildings designed by prominent architects take shape. Modern-day luminaries have also taken notice, with the likes of Neil Patrick Harris and Mikhail Baryshniknov recently choosing to call the area home.
According to CityRealty listings, there are currently 176 Harlem listings on the market with median prices of $1.15 million for condos and $475K for co-ops. They range from HDFC co-ops to newly constructed condos to classic townhouses. Whatever your taste and budget, there is something for everyone here.
