UPDATE: Thank You Morningsider Blog For Covering HarlemCondoLife

The Morningsider Blog was recently covered in the The New York Times in December, and announced as much on their Blog.  In doing so they were gracious enough to mentiong HarlemCondoLife as one of the many blogs in Harlem that highlight civic activities, cultural happenings, new retailers, and entertainment choices in the area.

Excerpt:

“Today, we wanted to introduce a few of our favorite Harlem blogs that are must-reads before your next trip uptown (or around the corner)!  Combined, the blog network is sure to provide a wonderful guide to experience the diversity of living Uptown in the New Year.”

HarlemCondoLife

Described as “your gateway to Harlem,” HarlemCondoLife was founded by five Harlem newbies who moved to the neighborhood to seek new experiences. Today, Harlem Guy, NativeNewYorker, and Icare4Harlem, HarlemHouse still post regularly about their lives in Harlem from a variety of perspectives and first-hand accounts.

HarlemCondoLife frequently posts job opportunitiesreal estate newsrestaurant reviews, and polls, all of which help readers interact and learn about what’s popular among Harlem-enthusiasts. HarlemCondoLife also provides some intellectual stimulation by posting motivational quotationsbook reviews, and playlists and podcasts.

The 75 things New Yorkers talked about in 2011 include Harlem!

As we close out 2011, the New York Times reports that Harlem was one of the 75 things New Yorkers talked about in 2011. 

The top 10 were:

1. The G.O.P. debates. The best reality TV show not on Bravo.

2. The best moment of the debates: “Oops.”

3. The second-best moment of the debates: Ron Paul’s errant eyebrow.

4. Regis Philbin calls it quits after 28 years.

5. Kim Kardashian calls it quits after 72 days.

6. Adele.

7. Kate Middleton’s wedding dress (by Sarah Burton): Grace Kelly reborn.

8. Princess Beatrice’s fascinator (by Philip Treacy). Laugh if you will, but it raised $131,000 for charity.

9. Pippa Middleton’s derrière (by nature). The backside that launched a thousand paparazzi shots.

10. The D.S.K. whiplash. He’s guilty! No, he’s innocent! Hey, maybe he’s guilty after all.
