Hello,

I might be getting an internship which requires me to walk from the 116th subway stop to 125th street, I believe on Lexington Ave. This will mostly be during the day...I have heard mixed things about East Harlem...any opinions?

East Harlem is a mixed bag, and one does have to be careful about certain blocks. That said, during the day, I do not foresee any real problem, provided you do not take side streets with which you are not familiar. Lexington is a busy avenue, and 125th is also a busy street, so that route should pose less of a risk than some other routes, since some are not through streets, owing to the superblocks created for housing projects in the vicinity.

Here's a suggestion: why don't you just stay on the subway to 125th Street? The #6 train has a stop there too! That should cut nine blocks off your walk.

Maybe I misunderstood the OP's post but I took her to mean that her job required as part of her duties for her to walk from 116th to 125th. Some kind of on the street type work.

I thought so too. But her posting specifies both the subway station at 116th and 125th in the vicinity of Lexington. To me, that means she could stay on the train one more stop and have less of a walk. Could be she just didn't realize that the #6 train stops at both stations--or one day she rode the #4 or 5, and couldn't take either one to 116th.

And while I'm thinking about it, she didn't really say where she was starting out from, but the M101 and M103 buses both run on Third Avenue (half a block from Lexington). They both go up to 125th Street.
