Best Harlem Movers

Upper Manhattan where Harlem claims much of its ground doesn’t get the same type of hype that the downtown neighborhoods get. However, those in the know are familiar with why this part of NYC is a real gem — it’s full of historical significance, culture, music, delicious foods, festivals, and much more. All of this also comes at a lower cost of living and has more of a residential feel relative to the big city status quo. So, if you’re ready to sway to a different rhythm, come uptown and see what Harlem’s really all about.

Our Top Harlem Moving Tips

There’s some general agreements about where the boundaries of Harlem lie on the island of Manhattan, but it’s not fixed. To the north, the neighborhood ends at 155th Street. To the south, you’ll find the border along 110th Street, Cathedral Parkway, and 96th Street, wrapping around the northern side of Central Park. The East and Harlem Rivers are on the east side and Amsterdam Avenue to the west.
Harlem covers a sizable part of upper Manhattan, and actually is divided a bit further into Central, East, and West Harlem. With that in mind, there’s quite a lot of ground to cover. So, so let’s start with a few key details to get you started:

  • Cost of living. Harlem residents will attest to less spendy living than other Manhattanites. Housing costs are quite a bit lower than some of the other borough neighborhoods. For starters, the average rent for a one bedroom apartment in Central Harlem will run about $2,700 a month. It’s gone up in the past year, but still much lower than downtown living. Similarly, if you’re looking to purchase a home, the current median listing price is under the $1 million mark at about $850k. Those who live in Harlem also enjoy the economical transit options available to all New Yorkers from the Metropolitan Transit Authority. The neighborhood boasts easy access to the 1,2,3,A, and D subway trains. There are also a number of buses that traverse the Harlem streets. At $2.75 per one-way ride for subways and buses, you won’t break the bank getting around the neighborhood and beyond. You can also take advantage of the Metro North train line that has a stop in Harlem to get around, particularly in the upstate direction for an outing in quaint Beacon, NY. There are also bike rentals to pedal about the city and rideshare options as well.
  • Harlem’s Rich History. There’s much more to explore in this historical neighborhood than we can describe here but that’s part of the joy of being a resident. You’ll be living amongst it and can discover it at your leisure. The area is well-known for its significance in the history of jazz, the Civil Rights movement, as well as the Harlem Renaissance and African American art and literature. Its history of activism and social change can be explored at the Shabazz Center, dedicated to the legacies of Malcom X and Dr. Betty Shabazz. African American artistic expression is celebrated across the neighborhood, from performances at the iconic Apollo Theater, events at Langston Hughes House, and honoring the legacy of jazz greats at the National Jazz Museum. Exhibitions of current and past African American visual artists can be appreciated at Studio Museum Harlem. And that’s just a slice of what can help you better learn what this neighborhood is all about.
  • Food with flavor and soul. There’s a little something for all palates in Harlem and it has its own contribution to NYC’s foodie haven title. Make sure to pay homage to “The Queen of Soul Food” at Sylvia’s Restaurant. The restaurant, open since 1962, has been a real staple in the community and a culinary must for those who love a good plate. If you or those you know are eating vegan, but in search of some fantastic soul food, you can always grab a table at Seasoned Vegan. Big fan of big name chefs? Then a stop at Marcus Samuelsson’s Red Rooster restaurant is in order for the fried yardbird, meatballs, and mac and greens. If you’re in search of your next favorite neighborhood bar, Harlem Tavern has what you need on tap. But if burgers and fries are a must, Harlem Shake can serve it up with a froze (frozen rose wine) or Harlem-crafted champagne. With all these options and more, you won’t go hungry finding great flavors in this neighborhood.
  • Getting green. While the neighborhood bounds bump up against the northern edge of Central Park, it’s certainly not the only greenspace in which you’ll find residents recreating. When it’s warm outside, you may find folks catching some live music or playing basketball, baseball, or volleyball on the courts at Jackie Robinson Park. If you’re hoping to find a perfect spot for a picnic, venture into the lawns and barbeque areas at St. Nicholas Park. While you’re there, you can visit the Alexander Hamilton Grange, a national historic site and former estate of one of the founding fathers. And, for those days of summer when it’s a real scorcher outside, a dip in the Marcus Garvey Pool might really hit the spot. In the heart of the city, you’ll still be within close proximity to nature in this neighborhood.

    From start to finish my move was a great experience. I immediately got a quote. The scheduling was easy, and they provided me with information regarding insurance coverage (and took care of the paperwork my building provided). The move itself went like clockwork. The movers arrived on time and texted me when they were on their way with an ETA to the delivery site. They moved everything up the 3 flights of stairs into my apartment quickly and safely. A great company that provides great service at very reasonable rates.

    They were awesome! They take everything apart and then re assemble for you.They wrap up your tvs and glass shit professionally. They take the legs off your couch so it fits through doors. Everything's wrapped until it's inside so it doesn't ruin the paint on your walls if they rub against them.Not even a wine glass was chipped.

    They came at zero hour after the moving company I initially hired and paid a deposit to canceled. I was freaking out about my move not happening at all but they did get this done and my stuff arrived more or less intact and accounted for. They handled changes and snafus gracefully and earned their money. Hopefully I won't be moving again for a long time but if I get forced into that again, I'll remember this experience.

    Was very easy to call and set up a move. The price was good to. I had some mix-ups and needed to add items and even change the date, but they were able to easily accommodate. Day of the move the crew was super nice and professional. They quickly packed up the entire apartment with ease, I didn't really lift a finger. They made what is usually a stressful day pretty easy.

    I was amazed how efficient the guys were. they sorted out my items to be removed and, went straight to work. We will definitely use A Piece of Cake multiple times in the future until, we officially make the BIG MOVE! THANKS FOR YOUR HELP....YES, IT WAS A PIECE OF CAKE! NO STRESS INVOLVED...JUST SWEET SERVINGS.....

    Piece of Cake Moving was phenomenal to work with. From the initial sale, to the follow up, to the day of delivery. The moving crew themselves were a dream to work with. I honestly don't know how they managed to move everything we'd accumulated over the years in such a short (relatively) period of time. Will definitely use them again (in hopefully 7-8 years).

    Jose and his team did a great job moving my husband and I. They arrived on time and were very organized. They were professional, courteous and moved us quickly. They wrapped our furniture very well. They took apart and put together our bed and sectional couch. We were very pleased and would recommend them.

    Nicholas and Giga made this moving experience an easy one, especially since I was moving alone. They were punctual, kind and very thoughtful. When we arrived to my apartment? They helped unwrap all the packing tape and set up my furniture and bed - something that would take probably days for me. They delivered excellent service and went beyond my expectations.

  • star star star star star

    Excellent moving company. I hired 2 men for 2 hours to complete 1 bedroom move. They arrived early, were extremely efficient, helpful, personable, strong, and careful. They finished the job with 45 min to spare. Everything went extremely smoothly. I would hire Piece of Cake again.

    Great move with POC movers! I rented their pink bins which was an excellent choice, they provide plenty of packing paper, zip ties, and tags. My team arrived right at the start of their arrival window and quickly and safely packed all my bins and furniture into their truck. The team just as efficiently unloaded everything, leaving the bins in the labeled rooms and re assembling my bed frame. I definitely recommend renting their bins. I would definitely use Piece of Cake movers again and recommend them to a friend.

    The movers were so professional, friendly and quick. They took such great care of my stuff. I happened to move on one of the hottest days of the year and felt so bad. They were gracious and so still worked quickly. Pls make sure you tip your movers good, they work hard and were really great!

    I had made an appointment from another moving company that completely screwed me over the day of. I called every moving company in New York freaking out, and Piece of Cake was willing to come at 7pm to help me move, last minute. I genuinely don't know what I would have done if they didn't go out of their way to fit me in. Anytime in the future I will be using piece of cake moving! They boxed and unboxed so fast and efficiently, it was amazing!
