About East Harlem.com
East Harlem.com began as an alternative to a failed community newsletter/newspaper in 1995. Jose B. Rivera, the editor of the newsletter recognized that web pages could be created for less of an expense, and potentially reach more people (in the future). Like television, content had to be available for those just hopping on the web and for those who would be in the future.
The web site’s main purpose is to inform the East Harlem community of news that would not be covered by the mainstream media. And to inform the world that East Harlem was a nice place full of wonderful people.
This website is dedicate to all past, present and future East Harlemites. All of whom have made this community a most dynamic place to live, learn and grow.
