In 3 years a lot of these 14-year-old shooters will be 17-year-old shooters.

They need to invest in more community spaces in East Harlem. The neighborhood cannot be policed more than it already is, yet itís still bad.

Also, East River Houses on E 102 - 105 is arguably worse than even most areas north of 116. Theyíve raided those projects at least twice and itís still a hotbed for gangs (one of the three homicides this year happened there).
What did you expect?

Bunch of young and dumb hot heads that get a piece off some eegit in hood, or go down south themselves. Either way it ain't like their down in the basement with a padded wall doing practice.

Most any of em know is how to lock and load, then point and hope for the best. Young (and often scared) thug trying to be a big shot with a gun.

This is why there are so many innocent bystanders shot not just in NYC, Jersey, Chicago, etc..... These eegits couldn't hit the side of a barn , but they know they've got a buzzer so they're real tough guys.

Wagner is the worst as well. When the Acacia Houses were constructed on them I wished everyone who applied to em luck. Acacia is actually not bad from the outside

Oops, I got my dates mixed, yesterday was Indian Buffet in Astoria. Namaste on 30th Ave...so, so.


Walking tour of LES is 9/25.
Why Dominican? Because the group decided to treat me to lunch and they said Dominican. I don't haggle about a free lunch.

East Harlem is still bad yes , like with all other Nyc it’s was much worse years ago but it still has some of the highest crime for New York period , it’s likely in the top 5 . A lot of people got shot on 102nd and 103rd this past couple of months but it was more on 3rd avenue and east of it . Most of the neighborhood is **** tho cuz of the extreme amount of housing projects , it’s basically Brownsville lmao it’s just that’s in manhattan that makes it better

yea lower east side has always had more Puerto Rican but thereís many Dominicans there now . Dominicans often move places that are heavily rican like bushwick , probably because of the similarity of our culture to thereís . Many people in New York are both Rican and Dominican

The very best place for you to go for Hispanic food in the Lower is Casa Adela On Avenue C and 5th street. Itís Puerto Rican place and very very good

East harlem was improving somewhat rapidly during the end of Bloomberg years but recently there has been a lot more crime and QOL issues. Its hard to believe that you’re in manhattan when in fact it feels more like the Bronx.
