Community gardens are a cultural link that allow neighbors to come together in a public green space, to grow fresh food, to learn about healthy diets and lifestyle choices, where the old mingle with the young, or simply cool off in the shade on a hot summer day.
Central Harlem needs community gardens like Harlem Valley Garden, Electric Ladybug, Jackie Robinson, and Pleasant Village to continue to grow community, support health, collaboration, and neighborhood solidarity.
We admire Mayor de Blasio’s progressive vision for our city and support the creation of affordable housing in all the boroughs. HPD has an opportunity to do exactly that on empty lots, while preserving the existing gardens.

One of our favorite restaurants is Thai Market. They are adjacent to Harlem and deliver into Harlem. They are reliable, courteous, quick, well priced, and the food is always great, always consistent in taste, quality and quantity. I realized just how much I like them (and just how bad the conditions are in Harlem tonight) when I called and they told me they could not deliver to my area (which includes Restaurant Row) because it is too slippery. Which I totally understand.
If you have not tried this place, please do. It’s great.

“I am the hopeful black woman who
was denied her right to vote.
I am the caring white supporter
killed on the front lines of freedom.
I am the unarmed black kid who
maybe needed a hand but was
instead given a bullet.
Selma has awakened
Selma is now.”

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.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone from all of us here at HarlemCondoLife Your Gateway To Harlem. Wishing you and your family and friends a meaningful and joyous day of celebration together.
Please keep in your prayers those who are less fortunate and those who are experiencing loss of loved ones or not able to be together with their families due to their military service to our country.

We stopped by HFB on Thursday to try the fried chicken after hearing the buzz about it and we were so happy we did. Wow!.. and I’m not kidding.
The chicken was D-licious. Moist, tasty and crispy but not greasy. It was accompanied by creamy mashed potatoes and green beans that snap when you bite into them. Luckily, we managed to score one of the last servings. I had it with my favorite happy hour drink there, the Watermelon Martini which I like on the rocks.
All I could say during my meal to my husband was, ” I’m in heaven”. So see you there next Thursday as I can’t wait to go back for more! =)
