Springtime in Spanish Harlem

I walked a bit through lower Spanish Harlem today and into the Conservatory Gardens in Central Park. If it weren't for the projects, El Bario would be a great place to live. There's lots of cute little gardens and restaurants- I really have to go back for the food soon. It's so vibrant and full of life- the streets are hopping and it has a low rise character to it- lots of sun. Lexington Avenue makes an incredibly steep drop between 102nd & 103rd Street, check out the slant on Jalapeno Deli:
Spring is definitely here in New York City- the flowers are all in full bloom. I love the Conservatory Gardens- they are usually not too crowded for Central Park, it's very well tended, and the flowers change with the seasons.
