Are the crime rates very high in Harlem, New York?The opinions expressed here are those of the individual and not those of StreetAdvisor. Report
Theyre higher then the rest of Manhattan, but it doesnt even compare to Chicago or Detroit.

That's a dumb question. Any place has crime. It happens where the very rich brush aside the very poor. Queen Marie Antoinette said "let them eat cake if they have no bread" shortly before she lost her head. Hopefully you understand how to avoid crime. Or stay near the numerous armed guards protecting tourists and money in Harlem.

Who are these asshats responding about Harlem? agh
Depends on what part of Harlem. West side is much safer than the east side.
Depending where in Harlem it is
You have to compare the official police stats of the Harlem precincts to other neighborhoods in Manhattan. Asking random people their random opinion isn't going to get you an objective answer.
You should look it up. I believe you can find stats on nyc.gov.
