Many weeks ago rectangular openings filled with dirt but level to the ground appeared dotting the cement sidewalks lining Frederick Douglass Blvd (8th avenue). See our previous post A Million Trees coming to Frederick Douglass Boulevard in South Harlem?
These plots have now been filled with wonderful new trees, the variety of which I am uncertain. This will be nice in the summer months especially for the restaurants which have outdoor seating.
We find this very exciting and something to look forward to this spring.
If you have any information to share drop us a line!

My husband, daughter and I recently had lunch at Frederick Café Bistro located at 2104 Frederick Douglass Boulevard and enjoyed it very much. I had the lentil soup and the Norwegian Smoked Salmon Panini. My husband had the chicken soup and the Ham and Cheese Croissant. The service was attentive and the place has a nice casual vibe. My daughter was in a stroller and they accommodated it. We will be back to enjoy some more delicious food and to try out their brunch.
Please check out their website for their full menu and more information.
