Default Lexington and 100th? Would you live there?

I've heard conflicting remarks on if people would live in East Harlem. I'm considering an apartment on Lexington and 100th, but I was wondering since it is close to Mt. Sinai Hospital and UES that it would be a safer part of East Harlem. What do other people think?

Like many neighborhoods around the city, it's a block-by-block proposition. Being that close to Mt. Sinai and the rest of the Upper East Side is, overall, a good thing. The only way you're going to be able to reach a decision is to check out the area with your own eyes...and see how you feel walking from Lexington and 100th to the local stores, the bus stop, the subway station, etc.

There are housing projects in the area, though the larger NYCHA projects are to the east and to the north, save that there is a smaller project that divides this area from the rest of the Mount Sinai area that runs from Madison to Park.

Overall, it's not the same as further into East Harlem, but it's also a little different than the the immediate Mount Sinai environs, primarily because 100th is not a through street, which can make a difference in terms of safety. That particular stretch of 100th runs from Park to 3rd, with housing projects cutting the street at either end. It's not the worst part of East Harlem, by any stretch, but I'd take adequate precautions walking around the area alone after dark.

I'd have no problem living around there. I've got friends that live there and they have no complaints.
