A few years ago, in 2008 HarlemGuy at a blog meeting for HarlemCondoLife with 6 bloggers present at the meeting in front of witnesses, came up with and coined Frederick Douglass Boulevard from 110 to 125th Street as “Harlem Restaurant Row“. Which since has become a signature phrase credited to Harlem Condo Life.
