East Harlem

Commonly known as “El Barrio,” East Harlem has a strong Latin, Caribbean and African American presence. That influence is reflected in the neighborhood’s cultural institutions, shops and restaurants. Numerous parks and works of public art add to the allure.

Get there
Take the 6 train to any of five subway stops from 96th to 125th Streets (the 4 and 5 also stop at 125th).
Come for
A cache of museums and arts centers, and the chance to pursue, against the odds, a table at Rao’s. (Also consider Patsy’s Pizzeria or Ricardo Steakhouse.)
Stay for
Cocktails, murals, cuchifritos and Latin jazz.
Locals know
That NYC has halls of fame for stickball and graffiti—and they are both here.
