From the Paper:

"The section of New York City that is known as Harlem generally runs north and south from 110th street to 155th street, and east and west from the East River to the Hudson River in the borough of Manhattan. "It's about the size of Cincinnati, Ohio, and like many urban communities in the U.S., it has become a hot spot of inner-city development, where new businesses, megastores, and an ethnically mixed population--mostly middle class--have pitched their tents" (Alleyne & Anderson 2003:76). The shifts in demographics that are taking place across the country are also happening in Harlem; however, in Harlem's case, the changes hold special significance."
