About Lenox Avenue:

The stretch between West 118th and 131st streets now boasts 20-odd friendly bistros and bars. Most offer outdoor seats on Manhattan’s deepest sidewalk. Legendary Sylvia’s, early 21st-century pioneers Red Rooster and its downstairs club Ginny’s, Settepani, Chez Lucienne, Il Caffe Latte and Jacob have been joined by a batch of new arrivals.  Lenox Avenue has a rich history, as the heart of Harlem during the Harlem Renaissance in the 1930’s.  Originally a part  of Sixth Avenue, it was renamed in late 1887 for philanthropist James Lenox. In 1987, it was co-named Malcolm X Boulevard, in honor of the slain civil rights leader.  From 119th Street to 123rd Street, Lenox Avenue is part of the Mount Morris Park Historic District designated by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission in 1971.
