Description

E-Book Series

“Chloe the Yogi: The Amusement Park is the first edition of a five book series of electronic yoga adventure books that mirror the experience of a children’s yoga class. The story featuring Chloe the Yogi is an engaging vehicle for learning yoga poses and reinforcing the emotional support that children get through stretching, breathing, and role playing. Designed for the iPad, the Chloe the Yogi E-Book series was created as an answer to parents’ desire to see and experience what their children are learning in the increasingly popular yoga classes offered for children. It is the first book designed specifically to be enjoyed through electronic devices where both the child and the parent can benefit from seeing the movement in and out of the pose. The Chloe the Yogi E-book series is tailored toward children ages 3-7 and their parents.”

We came across this Mega Fruit Stand on the corner of Frederick Douglass Boulevard and 116th facing Harlem Tavern late Saturday night. A group of us friends leaving tavern bought fresh fruit for juicing, for breakfast and for the week.

Huge variety and quantity. Good prices. Friendly service.

Would love to see them add a juicer and payment via Square. We hope that this stand stays throughout the summer with late hours.

Harlem Flo

Harlem Flo

Harlem Flo flower shop (original) was one of the new businesses to open years ago on Frederick Douglass Boulevard’s restaurant row.  Now they are expanded in to a multi purpose boutique.  More and more FDB is becoming retail row as well as restaurant row.

With Harlem Flo combining both of their locations into one large expanded and renovated space, they are able to offer many different consumer needs.

Harlem Flo HarlemCondoLife

The other day I stopped in for a blank card (my personal favorites are by local artist AFineLyne Lynn Lieberman), and walked out with a bag of gifts and a house plant.  They have great candles, books and art just to name a few.  If you are going to a dinner party, a housewarming  or have a special date, and need a gift they have a large selection of appropriate items including the traditional long stem roses.  As their window conveys, Garden ∙ Art ∙ Gifts.
See their website Harlem Flo Boutique.

For those of you who have outdoor space or just want summer flowers in your apartment window, one of the owners Louis Gagliano was telling me they will have flats of summer flowers in front of their shop from spring to fall.  They already have some early spring flowers available.  They have an expansive collection of cut flowers and healthy indoor orchids, cactus and a variety of house plants.

The combining of the two locations last summer was a smart move.  If you haven’t visited Harlem Flo yet stop in and pay them a visit.  Even if you do not need anything you will probably end up buying something.  Adjacent with Harlem Flo Boutique is the corner Coventry Garden.  This will look great in the summertime.
