Getting Here and Around
The 2 and 3 subway lines stop on Lenox Avenue; the 1 goes along Broadway, to the west; and the A, B, C, and D trains travel along St. Nicholas and 8th avenues. And yes, as the song goes, the A train is still usually "the quickest way to Harlem."
The city's north–south avenues take on different names in Harlem: 6th Avenue is called both Malcolm X Boulevard and Lenox Avenue; 7th Avenue is Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard (it's named for the influential minister and congressman); and 8th Avenue is Frederick Douglass Boulevard. West 125th Street, the major east–west street and Harlem's commercial center, is sometimes called Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.
