5.0 out of 5 stars An interesting history of NYC 16 July 2013
By Jersey City Sparks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is about so much more than Harlem. Osofsky tells a story of why African Americans migrated from southern towns to New York. Then the book actually details the migration of Blacks from the Wall street area through the mid-town west area to Harlem. Along the way we learn of the politics & powerful will of a people destined to establish themselves in Harlem U.S.A. I enjoyed it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Harlem: The making of a Ghetto: Negro New York 1890-1930 9 Mar. 2010
By Free Spirit - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The reading was not about what I thought it would be. I thought it was going to go into the jazz age, but otherwise not bad. It gave a brief history of the early years of how Harlem got to be. What an irony that Harlem wasn't always a ghetto, it was a whealthy neighborhood. Jews and Italians used to live there back in the 1800's and early nineteenth century. How it has change over the years, comparing it to the way it is now, I don't think it has change much in it's ecomomic situation, and also in it's crime and vice. Harlem was where the rich and well to do had their mansions and estates. I went to school in Harlem and I remember I believe it was Hamiltons house there in 143 street and convent ave. They have moved it some where else very few of these historical landmarks are still around New York today.
