Upper Manhattan

What are the bounds of this?

My first mistake here is that Harlem is not a full-fledged borough, it’s just a neighborhood in Manhattan. It’s the upper boundary of Manhattan, north of 110th Street, which is the top boundary of Central Park.

It extends north to the Harlem river, which cuts diagonally from northwest to southeast. This river is what makes Manhattan an actual island. The other side of the river is the mainland, continental US. Across the river is The Bronx.

So, it’s easy to say, “Harlem is everything between the north end of the park and the end of the island.”

However, that’s not quite true.
