No need to leave Harlem for NYE 2015,  celebrate at your favorite watering hole, restaurant or club in Harlem!  Last year almost every spot up and down Frederick Douglass Blvd (Harlem Restaurant Row), Lenox Ave and everything in-between held festive celebrations uptown.

Support your local businesses and neighborhood restaurants and bring in the new year with neighbors and friends.  Last year was very successful if it is any indication of how busy this year will be, so make sure to call and make a reservation ahead of time.  We have highlighted each venus website below for your convenience.  It is not too early to plan New Year’s Eve is right around the corner.

We are happy to see the retro blue holiday lights back again this season! Harlem’s exclusive real estate service firms, Harlem Lofts, Inc. (Harlem Lofts) and Harlem Property Re+Development, Inc. (HPRe+D) and Harlem Property Management Inc., graciously decorating more than 30 Harlem Townhouses again this holiday season. “The design is the 1960’s large-retro bulbs I remember from my childhood (but we are using earth friendly LED versions now) says President of all three firms, Robert “Robb” Pair. As you walk around Harlem at night you will see the blue holiday lights outlining homeowners entire Townhomes.

Harlem Lofts Inc. and Harlem Property Management Inc. funds the project while their sister company Harlem Property Re+Development took care of the labor as they strung 4,000 lights total during this holiday project. “It started out with a few client homes’ in 2008 when the economy was in the dumps and we had extra workers that I didn’t want to lay off due to the recession.” “It was a win win for the times and it felt good to spread holiday cheer and boost the spirit and the look of our neighborhood during the rough times” says Robb Pair. Mr. Pair alluded that now it’s just a way to say Thank You to Harlem and his neighbors as both have been instrumental in his life and businesses in Harlem. He will be continuing this annual event into the future in a show of appreciation and festivity for the community in which he not only works, but also lives and is raising his 4 Harlem born boys, Nikhil, Jet, axel and Zaven.

One Morningside Park – Almost Sold Out in Harlem

phliving3

Down to 4 units left in One Morningside Park they are almost sold out.  The penthouse unit with sweeping views of both Central & Morningside Parks, is selling for a mere $5,900,000 with two terraces.  This building hit the ground running as one of the most desirable new properties in South Harlem on the market.  People who bought over a year and a half ago during construction have already resold with high profits on their investments.

The same developers are now focusing on their latest project one block over the neighboring property nicknamed as the gas station lot.   Located on the south, east corner of 110th and Frederick Douglass Boulevard it is the last lot left on Central Park in New York City.    Ground has already broken and a sales office will open soon with floorpans of units ready to sell.   The higher units with unobstructed city / park views will undoubtedly become the priciest condos in Harlem.

2014 Holiday Gift Idea – Whitney Houston Live: Her Greatest Performances



With a bold, confident voice that commanded listeners to take notice and a body of work boasting some of the most upbeat and romantic recordings of the past three decades, Whitney Houston (1963-2012) has long solidified her place as one of the 20th century s most significant performers. But her ability to stun live audiences with her powerful vocal gifts has never been documented on an official release - until now. Whitney Houston Live: Her Greatest Performances will capture decades of live recordings and unforgettable memories of a true music legend.

From the moment Clive Davis introduced a 19-year-old Houston on The Merv Griffin Show, audiences knew this was more than your average talented voice.

Whitney Houston Live: Her Greatest Performances includes that seminal performance, plus others from three decades of stellar live appearances, from talk-shows (The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, The Oprah Winfrey Show) to awards ceremonies like the American Music Awards - and all the extra-special performances in between including 1994 s Concert For A New South Africa.
