Another Subway sandwich shop and dry cleaner coming to Harlem

By HarlemGal
Walking home this evening (Thursday night), I noticed two new shops getting ready to open on Frederick Douglass Blvd. At 301 Cathedral Parkway, right next to the State Farm Insurance office and near Frederick Douglass Circle, there is a Subway shop opening. The sign is up! Then at 2098 FDB, I noticed neon lights and signage were up saying Express Dry Cleaners.

I am happy to see the retail space is filling up along FDB. However, I was really hoping something else new and different for these type of commercial spaces, such as a 24-hour diner or an Asian restaurant (Thai, Japanese or Korean) or another vegetarian restaurant. Definitely not another Subway shop. What do you think? What would you like to see in some of these commercial spaces in Harlem?

    Really Subway and a dry cleaner? Le sigh.
    Well sushi, tapas, A DINER, anything other than a beauty salon or fried chicken spot.
