Let's Fix It.

Upper East Side and East Harlem

Did you know that across 96th Street on the east side of Manhattan, the life expectancy drops by 9 years? East Harlem, despite being situated just steps away from the Upper East Side, has been an impoverished, immigrant community for over a century. “Let’s Fix It” is a reminder that extreme disparities are all too common in NYC.
