Merging[edit]

There exists a New York (city)/Manhattan/Harlem which needs to be merged with this. --Ravikiran 20:25, 27 February 2006 (EST)

You're right. I can take some stuff out of that article and cut, paste, and edit it as appropriate, but how does one actually merge articles in such a way that the other topic is deleted after the merge? There shouldn't be two competing articles about the same place. -Michael 00:28, 28 Apr 2006 (UTC)
Once you're done with that, all you need to put a redirect from that page to this. Thanks for taking up this task. — Ravikiran 02:24, 28 April 2006 (EDT)
That wasn't hard. If I made any mistake, please feel free to correct my work at your leisure. -Michael 05:15, 01 May 2006 (UTC)

Recommending[edit]

Next question: Should we recommend or mention any places to sleep? There is the Harlem Y, for example, but I am not sure whether it would be unpleasant to stay in a place that has "a Transitional Housing program that provides social services to meet the needs of the residents who are living in transition until placed in supportive or permanent housing." That sounds a bit like the Y I once stayed at in Springfield, Mass. The people I encountered were all friendly, but the experience was a bit "interesting." I think that it would be best if someone who is actually personally familiar with the Harlem Y or other places to stay would edit that section. -Michael 05:46, 01 May 2006 (UTC)

Also, should the Morris-Jumel Mansion be here or in New York (city)/Washington Heights or both? -Michael 05:48, 01 May 2006 (UTC)

Hey thanks a ton once again. Yes indeed we should mention any places that a traveller might sleep in, unless they are both bad and obscure. If they are bad but well-known, then it is better to mention them as a place to avoid. As to your second question, I think that someone who actually knows the place would be better placed to answer it. — Ravikiran 08:39, 1 May 2006 (EDT)
I've walked past the Morris-Jumel Mansion. I think the mansion has traditionally been considered to be in Harlem, but if we're considering 155 St. the boundary line between Harlem and Washington Heights... -Michael 06:45, 03 May 2006 (UTC)

Descriptions needed[edit]

There are several restaurants with descriptions like "Anglo-Caribbean.". With no real description, price range, or website, that's rather useless. I'm inclined to remove them, but want to seek other opinions. The drink section is similarly useless. Presumably a traveler would simply wander the streets to find places instead of using description-less list. Thoughts? --Orcrist 12:54, 7 January 2012 (EST)

With an address and some minimal description of the cuisine, I'd say that's just enough to keep; it's not like the Eat and Drink sections are overflowing yet. LtPowers 15:13, 8 January 2012 (EST)
