HarlemCondoLife is happy to see that “Harlem Restaurant Row” (the phrase, the concept, the place) is maintstream, as friend to our publication Michael Feeney reinforces in his latest piece in the Daily News.
After several delays earlier this year, food trucks arrived on Frederick Douglass Boulevard. It was a huge success. Which translates into more trucks coming soon – starting May 10th.
We love a good food truck. Our one hope is that Harlem businesses will broaden their brand and their reach by setting up and/or bringing their own food trucks to the party. See our previous post Harlem Food Truck Rally.
Welcome one. Welcome all. Welcome food trucks to Harlem Restaurant Row. See the full NY Daily News article below.

Saturday and Sunday Brunch in Harlem is serious business – an event that is not to be missed.
It’s all about legendary, newly established and up and coming restaurants, often at full capacity, serving a wide variety of great food, to well-dressed locals and visitors from the world over, in one of The City’s hottest neighborhoods.
Stay tuned as we identify several of our favorite places below, which include the Five and Diamond, Red Rooster, Melbas, Harlem Food Bar, The Cecil, Chocolat, Sylvia’s, Lido, Maison, Kitchenette and Vinateria – to name just a few.
A word to the wise. Harlem’s Restaurant Rows are easy to stroll. However be warned: Be hungry. Have a place in mind. Pick a backup. Get there early. Don’t always expect to be seated right away it may take a few minutes. Don’t rule out making a reservation which you can do via Opentable, etc. Basically, apply the same rules you would apply elsewhere in NYC. But whatever you do, do check out Brunch in Harlem!

The NEW YORK RESTORATION PROJECT (NYRP) is offering free trees again this year. Click here for registration dates and details including Harlem. You can get a tree even if you don’t register but only on a first come first serve basis.
NYRP a non-profit organization dedicated to transforming open space in underserved communities to create a greener, more sustainable New York City. In partnership with the City of New York, NYRP is also leading MillionTreesNYC – an initiative to plant and care for one million new trees throughout New York City’s five boroughs by 2015, a full two years ahead of schedule.
We are living at the intersection of many crossroads. One such crossroad is race and wealth.
One of the manifestations of which is Bloomberg’s Billionaires Index. Which is exactly what it sounds like: an interactive exploration of the world’s richest folk.
The site is an interesting blend of design, functionality and content. It is also interesting by what it omits – exploration by race or ethnic origin. I tried to solve this in the long term by sending the Bloomberg team an email requesting this feature (no response yet). But in the short term, I did some plain old research using Google, and then looked for the results (also published in Forbes) in the tool.
I’m not going to spoil the results. I am going to let you enjoy using the site to satisfy your own curiosities.
But I can tell you that of the top 10 richest blacks in the world, I found one of them in the Index. Lower down in the list than I had hoped. Not someone I would have expected. A man. The second richest black is a woman. She is not on the list since her wealth at almost 4 billion apparently does not make the cut. Both their fortunes originate in and emanate from Africa.
It’s interesting to note how little we hear about Africa’s slow, steady and inexorable advancement as a world economic power. It’s no wonder that many nations and businesses – Big oil, telecom, finance and the Chinese, have set their sights on Africa, and are investing heavily there.
