It's southern boundary starts out at 11oth on the West Side, travels along the top of Central Park, and then drops down to 96th st. on the east side to include Spanish Harlem.  The boundaries might be a little indistinct, however--as Ralph Ellison once put it,  "Wherever Negroes live uptown is considered Harlem."
