I just stumbled upon your site! I grew up in Wagner Projects 2365 First Avenue apt 7C!! I attended PS 80 and JHS 45. Does any one know what services are being offered now in the old PS 80? My sister went to NY years ago for a visit and she said the school is longer there and something else is in it's place. Also I heard JHS 45 is now part of a high school? Thanks!!

Jose, your site looks great! Lived at 167 E 103rd between Lexington and Third for 18 years - too bad its been a vacant lot now for so many years. Saint Cecilia's was a great experience. I have the best memories of growing up in the neighborhood.

Keep up the good work Jose.

Man, its been over 30 years since I ran the streets of East Harlem. My parents moved to 112st and first ave. in 1959 and we stayed there till 1966. We lived in the Jefferson projects right on the corner - Right across from Jefferson Park. Spent alot of hot summers at Jefferson Pool. I also spent alot of time with the fellows (Nestor, Victor and Tito Lugo, Hector Moreu, the Pacheco brothers, Ray and Larry soto) at the Boy`s Club on 111st between 1st. and 2nd ave. At the Boys Club we were all members of the Lucky Aces. (Does any body remember?) summer time was often spent at Camp Carey or Camp Tabor caddying for some of the rich people up fisher`s Island, Conn. I remember playing baseball in the spanish league`s in Central Park. If anyones`interested I attended P.S. 102 then went to the High School of commerse before moving onto Louis D. Brandeis. I will never forget the day when my parents told me and my brothers that we were moving out to Queens. That was one sad day. But you know what? I attended one day at John Adams High school in Queens and couldn`t hang, so after that, I took the train into Manhattan and kept hanging out on 112st while also continuing to attend Louis D. until I graduated. Nestor Lugo, are you still out there my man? Do I sound familiar to anyone? If so send me an E-mail.

Hi, I grew up in East Harlem on 113 street accross from OLQA before the projects were built. Moved to the Jefferson houses on 310 east 115 in 56 and moved out 1962. Graduated from OLQA class of 1956. Because of your website I was able to contact some past East Harlemites and share our memories. Anyone from OLQA's class of 1956 contact me so we can get together.

Thinking of moving to NYC from California..lived here 20 years, originally from Delaware (live in the BURBS outside San Francisco)I LOVE California, but always wanted to live in NYC (believe me....hot, sunny weather EVERY day does get old!)......how would life be for a single (w/very cool dog) women in your neighborhood....who's looking to perhaps get involved in volunteer community work....perhaps with children or elderly??? The idea seems so exciting and scary at the same time (too much NYPD Blue/Law & Order I guess!!)

Hi I just want to say that this site is nice and informative to those who don't know the history of El Barrio. I am honored to be a part of El Barrio for over 25 years. Four of my children were born here in East Harlem. And all of my family one point or another in their lives have lived here in East Harlem. Got to go. By the way I would like to take the opportunity to thank those people who voted for me for District Leader in the 68th Assembly District part A. Thank You!!!! East Harlem and lets us unite as one to re-gain our power as VOTERS.

JENNIFER RIVERA | JENILATORMENTA@AOL.COM
IM SO PROUD OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THING I SAW FRIDAY MORNING 8.08.03 I SAW WHERE IM FROM THROUGH THIS WEBSITE I HARDLY CAN FIND ANYTHING ON EL BARRIO HISTORY. WHEN PEOPLE ASK ME WHERE IM FROM I SAY MY FAMILY COMES FROM PUERTO RICO, BUT IWAS BORN & RAISE EL BARRIO. SOMETIMES I FEEL THAT EL BARRIO IS LOOK UPON AS THE GHETTO AND WHERE THE LOW LIVES LIVE, BUT THEY ARE WRONG THIS IS WHERE THE TALENT AND BEAUTY LIVES. THATS WHY IM SO PROUD OF MY BARRIO BECAUSE WE REPRESENT AND HAVE SOMETHING THAT NO ONE CAN TAKE AWAY FROM US AND THATS OUR PRIDE. WHERE EVER I GO I NEVER DENY MY SPANISH BARRIO.
LOVE YOU ALL IN EL BARRIO

I was surprised to find that photos of an important and wonderful event of July 26, 2003, on 106th between Lexington and Third Avenues, were not taken by Jose Rivera. I was so much looking forward to see photos of the TROVADORES that were brought in by a 'trovador' himself, Mr. Eddie Rosa. For those of you who may not know what a 'trovador' is, a 'trovador' is a person who sings a 'Seis Decima'. A Seis Decima is not easy because you have to rhythm five lines in a pair of two, starting and ending with your choice of theme. Some of the themes were outstanding, one in particular was about a topical issue: Child Abuse. Oh how proud that music makes me as a Puerto Rican! How beautiful that these trovadores were accompanied by one of Puerto Rico's national stringed instrument: the Cuatro! How diligently and patiently they played while many trovadores sang about topical issues, about how beautiful Puerto Rico is, about how proud they are to be Boricua! It was an event to behold. For those who were there, didn't you just fill with pride? I'm sorry that Jose Rivera was not there to take photos...I'm sorry I didn't bring my camera! Maybe next year...for sure.

Webmaster comments   I am honored by your comments. I wish I could have attended the event too, but was unable to do so. I will endeavor to add a little more to my list of things to do, but remember, the web site is currently a one man show, most of my work occurs on weekends and I also have family obligations. Balance is the key.

My father, Anthony Mazzullo, was raised on 118th & Pleasant Ave (b. 1930 - 1950 moved to L.A. then on to Las Vegas). His Uncle (Nicholas LoGrippo) owned the candy store on the corner. It's nice to read that so many people have an interest in East Harlem.Take care, Natalie.

My son and his mom (my ex-wife) just moved to East Harlem. Although I've been once in NY, I never before had seen this neighbourhood. The pictures show a beautiful plenty of culture place. I'd like to know it ! (In portuguese: meu filho e sua mae (minha ex-mulher) mudaram-se recentemente para East Harlem. Embora tenha estado uma vez em NY, nunca tinha visto esse bairro. As fotos revelam um local bonito e cultural. Gostaria de conhece-lo !)

I lived for twelve years on 102 St (Lex/3rd) and saw El Barrio change demographically several times over the years. I do miss the neighborhood, the music, the street life and the people of El Barrio now that I'm back in Sweden. I'm so happy to have found this website with great photos to bring it all back to me. Thank you!

I was born at Mount Sinai Hospital and raised in Carver Houses. My parents are also natives of East Harlem. Though I moved to Houston 12 years ago, and have lived in many other places throughout my adult life, it warms my heart to see that El Barrio is surviving and thriving. I love coming back to the city at least once a year to see how things have changed and stayed the same. Excellent website, but you need pictures of the Carver Houses Amphitheater.
