East Harlem

Great food

Once home to a plethora of all types of immigrants, East Harlem actually used to have so many immigrants from Italy that one area was called Italian Harlem.

Now, East Harlem is home to the biggest concentrated Latino demographic in New York City, largely due to the influx of Puerto Rican immigrants post WWII. It’s no wonder that the alternate names for East Harlem are Spanish Harlem and El Barrio.

Hi Everyone,


We have a very nice true two bedroom on a cobblestoned street coming off a recent renovation at 118th street and very pleasant Pleasant Ave. You can move in immediately when approved November 15th 2014.

This little neighborhood is special since it has a Target, Costco, Aldis, a new hardware store and even its own wine shop too. The park is just down the street and there is a beautiful Riverwalk to stroll or ride your bike. We have plenty of new cafes, but also have Raos and Patsy's --awesome pizza!
(Shopping center security cars routinely patrol neighborhood, so that's nice too.) The apartment has high ceilings and gets great sunlight. New bathroom, new kitchen, etc.

Heat and hot water are included and provided by owner.

The neighborhood is very conveniant; the crosstown bus runs constantly so it's super easy to get to the westside or the 116th 6 subway stop.

If you are tired of the downtown prices, then head uptown where you can get a great deal and be happy.

Please call or email exclusive broker Matthew Swann for an appointment.

Thank you
