Fun Facts and History of Central Harlem

Central Harlem began its life much like the rest of northern Manhattan, as farmland. A bit more densely packed than the rest of the farmland in the area, the British made sure to burn it to the ground during the American Revolution as American forces retreated off the island. Once the war ended, the rebuilding process for the area was a bit slow.

Things in the area ramped up in the 1860’s and 70’s for several reasons, including the destruction of a prominent black neighborhoods to make room for Central Park, railroads were built further north, and the end of the Civil War brought many black families north to look for opportunity and safety from the post war south.

Once the neighborhood was full and rebuilt, the people there went into full swing, creating the art, business, and music. This event was called the Harlem Renaissance, and it started around the time of WWI. The Renaissance ended with the Great Depression, and a lack of government support left the neighborhood battered for years.

However, Central Harlem never stopped being influential, especially in the black community. Playing major roles in the Civil Rights Movement, Harlem was back in the limelight. By 1990, the city started to pay attention to Harlem, encouraging the people who lived there to permanently own their homes and beginning massive renovation projects. Today, Harlem is an energetic, proud neighborhood, with a personality that’s known throughout the world.
