People also donít talk about how Harlem created new black enclaves such as Little French African on 116th which Adam clayton Blvd sits in the middle of!

I go to a few black venues in Harlem today and I can tell you that this was only a fantasy back in the 1980s and 1990s.

I refuse to claim a war zone and crack filled community as a black mecca of any sort! To Kodeblues argument that Harlem was mecca during this period!
Churches dont pay taxes you fool.

I never spoke about Baltimore so thereís no matter of fact! LMAO

But please feel free to show me a post where I spoke about BMore in detail.
You have posts in the Baltimore sub-forum, and you've also said yourself that "real Baltimore dudes" talk like blah blah not southern this and some other nonsense. I'm certain that you remember this.

Now that we've gotten that out of the way, let's get back to the topic at hand.

Why are you lying in front of crowd?

My exerpience in Baltimore was based of me going there and speaking to the natives who were black. the only time I commented in BMore forum was when someone compared the crime rate to New York

Lmao such a lame excuse for a come back.

You can come back to the topic at hand by reading the historical context of Harlem I posted. Which demolishes your incorrect facts about Harlem.

Everybody needs to now that "BrooklynJo" opened another OP asking If Harlem was a good place to live in the 70 and 80s, just to copy paste the opinions of others in this chat.


He has to come to great lengths to "win" this argument.
we gotta praise his talent to "outsource" his arguments when he run out of ideas.

good job!!!

YAWn

“After the Depression, however, the city’s black population grew more quickly in other neighborhoods than it did in Harlem. The opening of the A train in the 1930s and the magnet of wartime shipbuilding jobs in Brooklyn drew Harlem residents to Fort Greene and Bed-Stuy in Brooklyn (Botein 2013, p. 718). After peaking in 1950, Harlem’s black population steadily declined, affected by suburbanization, urban renewal, public-housing construction, and disinvestment in the private housing stock, reaching a low point in about 1980. The city’s black middle class chose to live in less-dense neighborhoods with higher-quality housing, including Central Brooklyn, Southeast Queens, and more northerly parts of the Bronx. Those remaining behind in Harlem were increasingly poor and many lived in public-housing projects, subsidized housing, and low-quality private rental housing. By the end of the 1970s, the city had taken title to almost 70% of the private rental units for nonpayment of real-estate taxes.“

How would you even know about a comment made about NYC in the Baltimore forum in the first place?

It's my fault for engaging in the trivial foolishness. I won't put that on you.

As far as the topic is concerned, I still don't have NYC as a top tier as a black Mecca. You're telling me about neighborhoods that people outside of NYC ( tourists) don't know exist. DC feels like a black city, though that has definitely faded, Atlanta feels like a black city. In fact, Atlanta feels like The Black City. Baltimore is a black city, but it unfortunately isn't prominent for anything positive among it's black population, so it is disqualified as a Mecca.
