About the Neighborhood

Get into the groove in the neighborhood known for its historic (and influential) beats. A significant landmark of New York City culture, the Harlem YMCA is sometimes referred to as the “living room of the Harlem Renaissance,” as it is located in the heart of a rich, diverse cultural, literary, and artistic community. Established in 1901, the Harlem YMCA has remained a cultural steward of Northern Manhattan and continues to serve the area’s multicultural neighborhoods and communities with innovative programs and services that meet the unique needs of the individuals and families that call Harlem home. The neighborhood is constantly evolving and transforming, but some things never change: from the soul food to the music—from jazz to blues—to the historical architecture, Harlem has soul, character and rhythm that is hard to beat.
