CUNY has come up with a somewhat pedantic restaurant guide for East Harlem.

Dear Neighbor, What would a healthy Harlem look like? What would it take to get there? Can you spare a few minutes to think about that question and share your opinions with us? We would like to learn about the quality of life in Harlem. We will use the results from this survey to develop a plan of action to work together with residents and other community members to address the major health and community issues in Harlem. Our ultimate aim is to partner with the community to create a better and healthier Harlem for the sake of all who live and work here and our children. The survey is anonymous and voluntary and should take only no more than three to five minutes to complete. Link to Survey – https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ZRX52MJ Thank you! Your neighbors at The City College of New York and Billy Council.
