Upper Manhattan East

East Harlem (or El Barrio) stretches from East 96th St. to East 125th St. and is bound by the East River, and 5th Avenue. Aside from the tremendous Latin community, Spanish Harlem is home to many artists and writers, including James De La Vega, whose murals and street drawings decorate the neighborhood. Also, being home to the Mount Sinai Medical Center, East Harlem is home to many graduate medical students and young doctors. El Museo del Barrio, a museum of Latin American and Caribbean art and culture is located on nearby Museum Mile and endeavors to serve some of the cultural needs of the neighboring community. The rising price of living in Manhattan has more and more people moving in, to take advantage of the inexpensive rentals, relative to the adjacent neighborhoods of Yorkville and the Upper East Side. Subways: Take the 4,5 express train or the local 6 train along Park Avenue stopping anywhere between 96th Street and 125th Street.
