Description
East Harlem is bound by East 96th Street to the south, Fifth Avenue to the west, the East River to the east, and East 142nd Street near the Harlem River to the north.

It is home to many cultural centers that represent its mostly Latino and African population. One popular staple is the Harbor Conservatory for the Performing Arts, which is home to the Raices Latin Music Museum. The museum is a Smithsonian Affiliate, as it serves the community by presenting performances based on the theatre, dance, and musical acts.

There are also other museums nearby which include the El Museo del Barrio, Museum of the City of New York, and Museum for African Art which is north at Duke Ellington Circle. The National Museum of Catholic Art and History was once home to a former church.

Go Green East Harlem! is a movement dedicated to sustainable living for members of the community. It is sponsored by Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer's Office in partnership with many organizations that include Mt. Sinai Medical Center, City Department of Health, and Manhattan Community Board 11, to name a few. Their mission is to improve the environment by providing better air quality, quality recreational spaces, transportation, sustainable business, farmers markets, and healthy eating. They recently launched the East Harlem Green Market, which is open on the weekends so that residents can have immediate access to fresh produce.

East Harlem is home to a few major television studios that are north of Midtown. Metropolis , on 106th St. and Park Ave, is where shows like 106 and Park are produced. In 2003, PRdream.com, founded a media gallery and digital film studio called MediaNoche that is dedicated to Puerto Rican history and culture.

While East Harlem has the highest crime rate in Lower Manhattan, it also has many luxury apartments for sale. Many of these are low-to-mid rise and a few have amenities such as concierge service, gym, and laundry facilities. A few are pre-war conversions that have high ceilings and other fine details.
