"The neighborhood suffers from many social issues, such as the highest jobless rate in New York City, teenage pregnancy, AIDS, drug abuse, homelessness, and an Asthma rate 5 times the national average."

I would suggest taking a cab back and forth from work. East Harlem has Manhattan's highest violent crime rate. But as long as your not apart of the culture, then why would you be gang banged or killed over drug money lol? Robberies would be your biggest concern...

But why not somewhere more pleasant in Queens? Who cares about being trendy? You're already looking East Harlem haha. The neighorhood has to have of the most inflated real estate prices in the country! just because its in Manhattan! Its like living in the South Bronx but with a much heftier price tag! and as you know, if you aren't a native to the neighborhood you will be paying a lot more then you should in the old buildings. Probably twice as much as your neighbors

i disagree with your comment "Its like living in the South Bronx but with a much heftier price tag!" absolutely not. east harlem is in the midst of a transition which will take a little while to implement. the south bronx, especially nabes like mott haven, highbridge, west farms, castle hill, east tremont and soundview are far worse. they will take an extremely long time to be turned around, without a strong plan. you want c-town, & bravo, and old wilted vegetables, and disgusting meats, along with your drug trafficing neighbor? go right ahead, and move to those sections of the bronx. along the 125th corridor, you have so many options for transit, it's almost mindboggling. sure you'll see undesirables such as your local blockhuggers from wagner, & taino, recovering druggies, & such, but i assure you, if you don't bother them, they wont bother you. there is a huge police presence on 125th and lexington, with the precinct just 2 blocks away, so don't sleep. the area will be turned around. i'm fond of the tapestry condo on 125th & 2nd ave. there you have the downtown m15 bus, literally right on the side of the building, along with pathmark, 24 hour, and late night food options such as pathmark, ihop, popeyes, and mcdonalds, and shopping right at your feet. not to mention free wi-fi in jefferson park.

ginnie,

Is that the new 8-story red brick wiith the beige trim on the SouthEast corner of 125th and Third. Since your income must be very limited to be too low for Mitchell Lama take the apartmment if you "win" the lottery (I asssume 80/20 housing?) You won't find anything at Market prices.
The block to the East looks like Hell warmed over but the area around Pathmark is hustly-bustley which usually means safe.
It would do a lot for the area if they shut down that bottle reclamation mess at the back of the PATHMARK.

I hope your disability doesn't preclude you from using the subway at Lex...that is one of the perks of the area.

<I've recently decided to make that PATHMARK MY grocery store since it is only a single stop from 86th. Fast enough even to keep the ice cream hard. (Breyer's was $1.99 this weekend.)>
