Harlem World


New York City is a tight real estate market. Finding the right place will run you $700,000 to even look at larger studios downtown in a newer full service building. In the interest of getting more apartment for the dollar and staying on the island of Manhattan, many go north to Harlem rather than over to Long Island City or Brooklyn.

With that in mind, I have selected the best buys in Harlem BELOW $700,000. This is a sample of the best in terms of space, quality, location and price. There are many people who can run you all over the city in search of deals. We here know the deals and will take you straight to them.
