Since the Olnick Organization first broke ground on this development in 1958, Lenox Terrace has been Harlem’s premier address. One of the few all-rental white glove doormen buildings in Harlem, Lenox Terrace has always been a special community.

Harlem is also home to the Studio Museum of Harlem which focuses on the work of local, national and international artists of African descent, as well as art that is influenced and inspired by black culture. It’s all part of the quarter’s ongoing effort to establish itself as a must-visit Manhattan destination, even while it retains its distinctive character—which reveals itself in the historic churches, elegant row houses, unexpected parks and tiny home-cooking joints.

As with any cultural melting pot, East Harlem is a food lover’s paradise. Buoyed by an influx of former downtowners and emboldened by a tradition of culture and creativity, the neighborhood is chock-full of new high-end shops, restaurants, music halls and lounges.

And perhaps one of Harlem’s most famous icons, the Apollo Theater offers a wide variety of programming, including family-friendly shows and their famous Amateur Night every Wednesday.
