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.

Down to 4 units left in One Morningside Park they are almost sold out. The penthouse unit with sweeping views of both Central & Morningside Parks, is selling for a mere $5,900,000 with two terraces. This building hit the ground running as one of the most desirable new properties in South Harlem on the market. People who bought over a year and a half ago during construction have already resold with high profits on their investments.
The same developers are now focusing on their latest project one block over the neighboring property nicknamed as the gas station lot. Located on the south, east corner of 110th and Frederick Douglass Boulevard it is the last lot left on Central Park in New York City. Ground has already broken and a sales office will open soon with floorpans of units ready to sell. The higher units with unobstructed city / park views will undoubtedly become the priciest condos in Harlem.

Get your copy of a seminal book about Harlem’s history below.
Harlem is perhaps the most famous, iconic neighborhood in the United States. A bastion of freedom and the capital of Black America, Harlem's twentieth century renaissance changed our arts, culture, and politics forever. But this is only one of the many chapters in a wonderfully rich and varied history. In Harlem, historian Jonathan Gill presents the first complete chronicle of this remarkable place.
From Henry Hudson's first contact with native Harlemites, through Harlem's years as a colonial outpost on the edge of the known world, Gill traces the neighborhood's story, marshaling a tremendous wealth of detail and a host of fascinating figures from George Washington to Langston Hughes. Harlem was an agricultural center under British rule and the site of a key early battle in the Revolutionary War. Later, wealthy elites including Alexander Hamilton built great estates there for entertainment and respite from the epidemics ravaging downtown. In the nineteenth century, transportation urbanized Harlem and brought waves of immigrants from Germany, Italy, Ireland, and elsewhere. Harlem's mix of cultures, extraordinary wealth and extreme poverty was electrifying and explosive.
Extensively researched, impressively synthesized, eminently readable, and overflowing with captivating characters, Harlem is an ambitious, sweeping history, and an impressive achievement.
