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

President Bill Clinton kicks-off #HarlemEatUP festival, which is now well in progress, with a great opening speech.
A little bit of rain came through but it has passed and we are ready to eat some good food and try some great wine in this packed crowd!
Good to see Bill Clinton back in Harlem where he use to have an office on 125th street for many years.
Enjoy the festival!
