"I wouldn't recommend it to visitors or people looking to move in."

135th Street is a street littered with problems. While much of Harlem has been revitalized this street has been missed and it's been left with a run down feel uncommon with the cities lower numbered streets. Because of it's proximity it's not very convenient for those working in Midtown or Downtown. It intersects with St. Nicholas Park but it is not an area you would want to walk around alone. It is reminiscent of NYC prior to the war on crime. There are some convenience in the area; mostly convenience stores, delis and small businesses, but that can't redeem the area and it's chaotic and strange vibe.

"Eastside Heights Delights"

Nearby City College, this block is lined with wonderful architecture, trees, and a distinct history. There is a little bit of everything, convenience stores, hair salons, small shopping boutiques, and less expensive real estate. More and more people are beginning to head further north in Manhattan to find a cheaper place to live and this is a wonderful street to do it on. There is a large hill, and at the top a wonderful park overlooking the rest of Eastside Heights. It provides an interesting look at the difference between more gentrified New York and the grittier New York, which many believe to be the “Real” New York City.
