If you are looking for something different to do in Harlem on your days off, check out the River Art on the Hudson River along the path.
Here are just a few of some of the many works starting from West 130th Street down to West 68th Street including new pieces that were not there last summer.
The bike path and new park areas and piers all along the Hudson River have been built up with landscape, sitting areas and sculptures for the city and tourists to enjoy. I can remember 10 years ago when nothing was developed along the river. It was still nice to bike or jog along but now it is beautiful, very scenic and on the weekends it gets more and more crowded. As nice if not nicer than Chicago’s, Millennium Park and Austin’s, Zilker Park.

I am getting ready to journey out to Austin, Texas soon again and I noticed while I am there South by Southwest 2009 (SXSW) will be taking place, which is the equivalent of “sport’s March Madness” but for music. Since I blog about all things Harlem, I thought why not find out who is playing at SXSW that has some connection to mi gente y mi barrio. I narrowed my search to branding and found two bands using the name Harlem: Harlem Shakes and harlem.
Harlem Shakes is a New York City pop band. According to their bio, they are from Brooklyn formed in 2006. And the other is a rock band named harlem from the host city formed in 2007.
Both bands sound good and worth checking out. However, I don’t know which one to go see? Maybe one or both? Digame?
“Now let us begin. Now let us rededicate ourselves in the long and bitter, but beautiful struggle for a new world. If we will but make the right choice, we will be able to speed up the day, all over America and all over the world, when justice will roll down like waters, and righteousness like a mighty stream.
The Real Deal reports that a team involved with the 68-unit Mirada condominiums in Harlem have been temporarily banned from developing apartments in the state and ordered to set aside $3.2 million, pending a court case over alleged defects at the project. The AG filed suit against the developers in New York State Supreme Court, alleging a range of fraud and concealment at the eight-story development at 161 East 110th Street.
