February 10, 2020

HARLEM, NY — Children who are born and raised in Central and East Harlem face greater obstacles to living a healthy life compared to all other Manhattan neighborhoods, according to a study released this month by the Citizens’ Committee for Children.

Both Harlem areas were included the six New York City neighborhoods to be labeled “moderate high risk” by the Citizens’ Committee for Children’s annual study on the risks to childhood well-being in each of the city’s neighborhoods. East Harlem was ranked the 12th “riskiest” neighborhood and Central Harlem the 13th riskiest out of the 59 studied by the nonprofit dedicated to child advocacy.”
