Hi,

I'm planning to move into an apt. on 100th and Lex--do you think it's a safe area? I've lived in NY for a few years now, but mostly downtown and in BK so I'm not familiar with the area although I know it's technically Spanish Harlem. I'm a 24 y/o South Asian female.

The apt. is right on the corner at Lex which seems to be a busy street, although I will have to walk past the Lexington Houses project from the 96th St. 6 Stop. I'll also be a student, so I'll probably be coming home after dark most nights. What do you think?

Thanks!

i dont think its a bad area by east harlem standards.
lexington houses are not bad by nycha standards.
you shouldnt have a problem walking past them.
i would be more concerned with the maintenance of the building than crime issues, or anybody harassing you.

This area doesn't seem so bad to me either, and it is very convenient to so much of Manhattan.

On a side note: Seventh: what are the George Washington projects like on Madison, why is the Landscaping around them so much nicer than some of the other projects in Harlem, do you think its b/c they are near the UES?

I live on 108th and Lexington. Besides the population of Latinos, which I hope you don't mind, the area is fine.

lol...for some reason those projects have really good grounds upkeep, like flower beds, etc just curious as to why that was (and you seem to know a lot about project areas), really if it wasn't for the typical project "Architecture" if you can even call it that, the grounds would not look like projects

nahh i dont think it has anything to do with it being on the upper east side.....they prolly just have the luck of having a good tenant patrol organization and people who live there give a damn. too bad other public housing cant follow their example.
