Harlem’s History

The original inhabitants of this area of Manhattan island were the Wecquaesgeek, a Native American tribe. The Dutch arrived and started settling Haarlem in 1637-1639, naming it after a city of the same name in the Netherlands.

During the American Revolution, the British burned Harlem entirely. It was slowly rebuilt, growing slower than the rest of Manhattan. Its first economic boom came after the American Civil War in 1868.
This area has known major economic swings of boom and bust. Ethic populations have moved in and out with these cycles. In the 19th century, it was mostly occupied by Jewish and Italian Americans. African-Americans arrived with the Great Migration from 1910 through the 1970s.

Harlem began to grow again after the 1990s. It has been undergoing a long process of gentrification ever since.
