Word on the street: familiar Harlem bodega closing

20130121-184615.jpg
One of the long standing bodegas on Harlem’s Restaurant Row on 8th Ave and 114th st. will close in March due to rising rents.

The bodega was often a lifesaver for us.

We will miss them.

Best of luck.

    I don’t know about all that. All I know is the owner treated me with respect, and I treated him with respect. #HarlemGuy

    I will not miss this front for drug trafficking. Take a look at what is happening in and around this place!

    didn’t see anything like that there in the last couple years.
    The place next to it is vacant. I wonder if a business will come in and combine both store fronts? With Melbas right across the street would be a good place for another restaurant or a CVS.

    This place is a frequent post up point, dice games, and has been fined in the past for selling drug paraphernalia for crack / cocaine- I won’t miss it.
