141st and Amsterdam is pretty bad. It used to be much worse but still bad. It's 3 blocks from city college which helps it a bit.

Im not familiar with 115th and St Nick but usually the rule of thumb for the west side of Harlem is the higher you go the worst.

How's Edgecombe between 145 & 146th street? Thx.

Hamilton & 141st is the way to go, your close to city college, the subway and stores. Lots of older brownstone buildings you might fing something nice there.Edgecombe location is right at the Polo Grounds project. I wouldn't want to be coming home late around there, lots of abandon buildings etc
