You may not think of going all the way to the East River or near a major highway for a relaxing day, but FDR Drive has a great walking area and park so you can exercise and get a great tan in the summ...

1st Ave

Ranked 2nd best street in East Harlem

"Great energy but very noisy"

- JenMac
First Avenue is entirely too large to write about in one review. And, it changes so much, that it would be like writing about several different Avenues. Seeing as I have always lived downtown, I'll f...

Park Ave

Ranked 3rd best street in East Harlem

"all business midtown, all high class uptown"

- Cheesewrites
Park Avenue is one of the nicest streets to walk. If you head from the mid-30's up through the mid-50's office buildings and suited business men and women are common place, but further uptown it gives...

Pleasant Ave

Ranked 4th best street in East Harlem

"Pleasant East East Harlem"

- Cathcart
This is a nice little avenue that only exists for a few blocks in East Harlem (so east it's almost in the river). It's relatively quiet here, the rent isn't outrageous (by NYC standards), and there's...

"Columbia street in my mind"

"Gorgeous block, at least near the park"

- ajadedidealist
97th Street between 5th and Madison is one of the city's most gorgeous blocks. Right near the park, with tree-lined sidewalks and pre-war buildings, it's the ideal "Upper East Side" - not quite as pre...
