What HarlemEatUP Means To MeWe

IMG_5822_2

HarlemEatUp represented an important inflection point for the Harlem community. One that came with a variety of reactions from everyone I came across.    Reactions seemed to be of two flavors.  Some thought the event  was great.  Others felt the event was bittersweet.   However everyone agreed that the event signified that change had arrived and was here to stay.

As I reviewed my notes, photos and videos, I realized that I too have a range of feelings about what is happening.

My way of dealing with this will be to take my time posting about the event, doing so over the next several weeks or perhaps months, via HarlemCondoLife’s various social media outlets and our other web properties.

Me We

I hope you enjoy reading and viewing as much as I will enjoy writing and publishing.

Happy Memorial Day Holiday Weekend Harlem

We’re feeling the holiday spirit and wanted to share this all time classic “A Lover’s Holiday” by Change.  Maybe you remember it :-) ?

Regardless, if you feel it, share it.  Let’s hear it all over Harlem this weekend!

Looking forward to hearing this for sure at the next Sundae Sermon.

Not a cloud showed out in the sky that very night in Pitch Black City
I was so damned scared, it was dark, it was so dim, it was a shame
Just then a man walked up to me and said: “Didn’t I see you here before?”
The lights were low and the party was so dull, just not good enough

Holiday (Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey)
Holiday (Holiday, what you say?)
Holiday
Celebrate (Ah, yeah!)

Holiday
Holiday (Oh, I, I)
Holiday
Celebrate (Oooh!)

Then we both held hands in each other’s for a chance to start it moving
He reached deep inside of his vest and in his hand he held a ring
Let’s have lunch, picnic or a brunch in the wintertime
Let’s disco down in a roller skating ring in Alaska town

Holiday (Holiday)
Holiday (Oh, come on, celebrate)
Holiday (Ooohooohooohooohooo)
Celebrate

Holiday (Got the feeling, come on, keep ahead)
Holiday (Reelin’, holiday, yeaheah)
Holiday (Oh!)
Celebrate
