The Area Surrounding the Apartment
The communities from Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic are prominent in Spanish Harlem. Even though we are talking about an area that is just north of the Upper East Side and barely a few blocks away from Central Park, Spanish Harlem has an atmosphere and rhythm that has its origins in the Caribbean islands. It is a historically rich, cultural and proud community that demonstrates a different feel from other neighborhoods in New York City.
Walking just south of Spanish Harlem and you will enter into the neighborhood of the Upper East Side, where there is so much to do. A cool atmosphere that combines with a myriad of museums, art galleries, restaurants, shopping stores and a great nightlife makes this neighborhood very appealing.
Walking west from El Barrio, you will stumble into the vicinity of Harlem. There is an abundance of black history in this area. Harlem became a center point for social consciousness, political & civil rights, and the artistic movement. The Harlem Renaissance certified Harlem as a hub for poets, musicians, and artists to nurture and develop their blossoming talents. Harlem Boys Choir, Dance Theater of Harlem, Harlem Globetrotters and the world-famous Apollo Theater are all prominent staples of Harlem.
