Harlem: which parts are safe vs. sketchy?

I know the part on the west just north of Central Park and around Morningside Park is up-and-coming.

But what about the western parts around the C or the 1 train from like 120th to 155th?

And anywhere east of 7th Ave/Adam Clayton Powell Blvd, I'm totally clueless about and have no idea what the situation is.

Also would love thoughts on if there are any areas of Washington Heights to be avoided.

Thanks! I'm apartment hunting so any thoughts would be much appreciated!

The area around Columbia is nice.

Washington Heights north of 181 and west of Broadway is very nice but becoming a little expensive. There are some amazing buildings around 155 near the river. Inwood is still gentrifying and filled with nightlife.

How nice of you to post here, Ms. Deen. I suggest you go to 127th and Park. It would be quite the memorable trip.
