What Renters Like and Dislike About East Harlem New York

Well to be honest I don't like to go anywhere with my family and friends and the neighborhood I live in too much violence

I like that there are outdoor activities such as parks & pools. I also like that there are many options when using public transit and restaurants

Lots of local restaurants, great food, tourist come a long way to experience dining there. easy to get around, subway and buses , supermarkets and stores widely available

There is so many good places from all over the world. There are bunch of very affordable places like store and grocery shops

One of the unique features of the neighborhood are the famous landmarks, the restaurants, and the history.

I generally know just about all the neighbors within my community which is a good thing. Nearby Supermarket and public bus transportation are within steps of my home.
