East Harlem (El Barrio or Spanish Harlem, if you prefer) is growing accustomed to receiving visitors. This neighborhood’s vibrant roots are depicted through its large-scale murals, discussed in its museums, and revered by its members. The draw of its deep seeded traditions is matched by superb subway accessibility. Although East Harlem is gaining notoriety as a neighborhood to watch, it’s still raw at its core—especially after sunset.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
