Harlem Corner Gas Station (HP)
Several articles surfaced today in the papers and on local news channels about the corner Harlem gas station located on 11oth Street and Frederick Douglass Boulevard. This is an unfortunate situation that the city will most likely end up winning. With this prime real estate location a business is vulnerable to the city and eager real estate developers. The HP Harlem gas station is getting pressure from the city to sell. This location would provide incredible central park and unobstructed downtown city views. The Owner Carmie Elmore, and a partner took over the gas station in 1981. The pressure has increased for them to sell and their response to that is Hands off! Situations like this have often occurred with the city in the past and if history repeats itself it does not look good for the gas station owner. Read more from one of several articles about the ongoing battle here Lucianne.com.
The story was big enough to hit NY1 today. Twenty employees would lose their jobs if the gas station was sold. The neighborhood has changed with the booming businesses on Frederick Douglass Boulevard. What once was an undesirable property now has become the hottest piece of Real Estate on Central Park. I’ve stopped by this 24 hour market many times at night all the years I’ve lived here. I do not own a car but the need for a gas station at this location can easily be supported by the continuos flow of cars and cabs 24 hours. They also do repairs here which is very convenient. I imagine the gas station on 96th Street will double in business if the 110th Street gas station closes but that location is small, on a hill and very dangerous.
We will have to wait and see how this plays out but undoubtedly big business will win in the end.

Now you can enjoy Cafe Amrita indoors and outdoors. A friend of HarlemCondoLife let us know that Cafe Amrita now has outdoor seating. They have been steadily doing good business now for many years and their additional seating looks great.
Conveniently located 0n 110th and Frederick Douglass Boulevard right by the subway stop, Amrita is a great spot to have a coffee solo or a beer with a friend. We often have our Blog meetings there as they also have wi-fi. Please see our review by Austin2Harlem from a couple years back of Cafe Amrita.
