Living in Harlem a no-go?
Friends want to get a place in Harlem for the summer - affordable, spacious, etc and we've had a hard time finding other places on the island. I told them it's a dealbreaker and feel like they think I'm being unreasonable. AITA? My main concern is crime and in general I just don't want to live in a sketchy area - feel like the whole "it's gentrified" thing is not fully there given recent crime rates/the vibe I get talking to people.
Talking Central and East Harlem, not Morningside Heights/other nicer neighborhoods.
