New East Harlem Walking Tours Promote a Healthy Lifestyle

Posted by on Friday, July 21st, 2017

East Harlem has a problem. The rate of obesity in East Harlem is over four times the rate in Stuyvesant Town and Turtle Bay. In fact, almost two-thirds of people living in East Harlem are considered “obese.” The diabetes rate among adults is 13%, compared to NYC’s 9%, and heart disease hospitalization rates in East Harlem were 45% higher than the NYC average.

With heart disease as the leading cause of death among East Harlem residents, it’s no secret that something must be done to turn the tide and encourage people to lead healthier lifestyles. In a new plan to combat obesity, the city plans to pay five community groups up to $2,000 each to arrange walking tours along the new 3.5-mile East Harlem Walking Trail.
