"A real Manhattan Neighborhood"

I moved to Harlem 12 years ago. I'm from the Upper West Side of Manhattan (born and raised) and moved to the Bradhurst area 8 years ago. The area is good for families and professional singles. Anyone who knows anything about New York City knows that good and bad things happen in ALL neighborhoods. The neighborhood has changed DRASTICALLY since I moved here in 2004. NYSC, Starbucks, Pathmark and other businesses have opened. The 3 train now runs 24 hours a day. It used to stop running at 10 or 11pm when we first moved here. People are friendly. There are lots of people with dogs, it's a real Manhattan neighborhood. My main complaint is that the area lacks non fast food restaurants. I would like to see more of that in the area.
