Long thought as one of the Manhattan's grittiest areas, East Harlem has been improving its image and its housing stocks for more than a decade. Gentrification started slowly, first effectively ceding 96th-97th Streets to the Upper East Side, then working its way through higher streets. The population became genuinely mixed, although the neighborhood (also called "El Barrio") still retains its Latin-flavored character of yesteryear, with many inexpensive eateries and a largely working-class, Spanish-speaking population.
Other than housing developments (so-called "projects") of various sizes, the neighborhood contains mostly standard New York 4-to-6-story "tenement-type" housing. In recent years a few "market-rate" rental and condo buildings have been built as well.

In the late 20th century, East 96th street was one of the most widely known socio-economic "boundaries" in North America: to the south of it lied the affluent Upper East Side and to the north - the significantly less affluent East Harlem. Within the span of a few blocks, the average household income plunged to only a fraction of its value immediately to the south. This contrast has been softened and the border blurred somewhat by gentrification of the late 1990s and early 2000s, however. Gentrification aside, the population of East Harlem remains considerably less affluent than that of its southern neighbor. The neighborhood contains a significant number of housing projects run by the NYCHA (Carver, Lexington, Washington, Clinton, White, Metro North, Lehman, Johnson, Taft, Jefferson, Corsi, Wagner, Robinson, Lincoln).
