"A Little Africa in New York City"
As Africans immigrated to New York City for a better life many landed in Harlem. Since the largest number of immigrants from Africa come from Senegal the neighborhood they settled in is called Little Senegal. Little Senegal is located on 116th Street in Harlem between St. Nicholas and 8th Ave. This street contains resturants, grocery stores, ethnic food wholesalers, African Product Importers, etc. This area attracts immigrants from many african countries including Somalia, Yemen, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Ivory Coast, Guinea and Mali. The Majoroity of immigrants speak English and a African Dialect. This street is very lively, colorful and full of life. A great place to visit.
