As far as politics is concerned, the media loves old school places like Sylvia's to represent Harlem and ABC News has an update on what election night was like at the uptown original. The articles speaks of Harlem as being the "heartbeat of black America" but also acknowledges the change at hand with the big box retailers arriving on 125th Street and the racially diverse crowd at the turnout. There is also a quote from a young gay Columbia student which further shows the diversity of the nights events. Harlem has started to become more diverse again like the rest of the country and a view of election night at the local hangouts often gives the nation a look at the change at hand.
