District 4 extends from East 96th Street and Second Avenue to East 125th Street and the Harlem River. Although mostly in East Harlem, it also includes Ward's Island and Randall's Island. The area is experiencing a boom in housing and is welcoming middle class newcomers. Academic performance varies widely here but there are a few strong neighborhood elementary schools, among them PS 83 and PS 171 which also has a middle school with a few spots for high-performing children from outside the zone.
