This is the northernmost of the institutions along Museum Mile. The East Harlem neighborhood, bounded by Fifth and Third Avenues, East 120th and East 96th Streets, was largely an Italian enclave before Puerto Ricans began settling here in the 1920s, calling it El Barrio, the neighborhood. After World War II, other Latin American groups settled here, too, and this museum is a showcase for the art of their combined cultures.
