Walking through the neighborhood the other day on my way to work I noticed a local Harlem Cafe featuring African fare is closed.  Located at 2115 Frederick  Douglass Blvd.,”Cafe 2115″ tucked in-between Maharaja Palace and the Laundromat  has always been brightly lit with a flow of customers. I’ve only eaten their a few times in the couple plus years they have been opened. Here is a link to the not-so-positive Yelp reviews.   I dialed the telephone number and it is disconnected.  Papers are now up on the windows and work is in progress…

This week we celebrate two versions of My Funny Valentine by Chet Baker.  The first, his classic studio recording which in my opinion was one of the best versions of My Funny Valentine ever recorded.  The second shows footage of Chet Baker performing  live in Torino, Italy (1957) with his smooth and melodic interpretation of My Funny Valentine.

Truly one of our jazz greats he takes us through a deep journey with hundreds of recordings and a handful of vocals over the years.  A great movie – Let’s Get Lost 1988 is a documentary by Bruce Weber on Chet Baker’s life journey and tells his story through all the good and bad.  In listening through Chet’s videos and recordings, his haunting version of My Funny Valentine stands in a class of its own.  One of the most beautiful versions of this song ever recorded.

A reader of HarlemCondoLife informed us about a new 100,000 square-foot development that will be opening at 301-303 125th Street and Frederick Douglass Boulevard.  The four story building will include a DSW discount shoe store, Joe’s Crab Shack restaurant and Blink Fitness expected to be finished in 2013.  With a Red Lobster opening up next to the Apollo Theater we will soon have two new seafood restaurants on 125th Street.

We recently wrote about the plans for a Whole Foods to be one of many new businesses coming into the development to be built in the vacant lot on 125th Street and Lenox Avenue.  With the landmark Apollo Theater and all of the traffic  that it brings from all over the city I imagine this will only increase this busy 125th Street area.  WIth the heavily trafficked restaurants on Lenox Avenue, Red Rooster, Sylvia’s, Corner Social and the newly opened Les Ambassades there are plenty of great restaurants to eat at after an afternoon of shopping.  Also Cedric Bistro and Billie’s Black on 119th Street and too many restaurants to list on Frederick Douglass Boulevard which is now referred to as Harlem’s Restaurant Row.

Harlem’s 125th Street is a dynamic retail neighborhood with a wide variety of restaurants and a tremendous amount of foot traffic surrounding the area.  With subway lines on both Lenox Avenue and Frederick Douglass Boulevard, the amount of retail space, community residents and colleges in the surrounding area it is not surprising that Harlem is starting to attract more chain retailers.

Dominos Pizza on 111th and 8th (using old skool vernacular) has a “Help Wanted) sign posted in the window.

Perhaps it’s a sign of a growing economy. Regardless, it’s a good opportunity during hard times.

If you see or are offering any local opportunities, tell HarlemCondoLife, so we can spread the word.
