Anything interesting happening for Christmas displays in Harlem? Is it safe for tourists to go to Harlem?

On my last trip to Manhattan the farthest uptown I got was the Zoo at Central Park. On this trip I wanted to explore a little of Harlem, both at Christmas and other times of the year.

Thanks

Oh yes, it is very nice uptown during the holidays. Jump on the A,B,C, or D train and ride up to 145th Street. You'll be in the middle of Hamilton Heights in West Harlem. Walk up the hill on 145th Street and take a left on Convent Ave. It is a beautiful area and some people on Hamilton Terrace went all out. Beautiful brownstones decorated to the T.

While there you can stop by Alexander Hamilton's home over on 141st and then grab lunch or dinner at a nice place on Amsterdam like The Grange Bar and Eatery or Fumo or any other one of the great options.

Let me know if you have any questions. Harlem, especially West Harlem, is safe and very beautiful.

125th has the pretty lights above the street.
It's one of the better views in New York during the season.

The stores are decent, but it's nothing too amazing. The windows are not like they do on 59th street. Almost like an X-Mas from long ago.

As much as harlem changes for the better, to me it will always have this gloomy feel to it.
