I’m so excited that we now have an Insomnia Cookies store in Harlem. I’ve been to their location on the Upper Westside and they are great! They are located on 110th and Amsterdam.
My favorite are the double chocolate chip but they have a large variety of delicious cookies including peanut butter, white chocolate macadamia nut, snickerdoodle, chocolate chip chunk and sugar to name a few. They are open late and deliver so check them out!

Today is the first day that Frederick Douglass Circle in Harlem is available to the public. Yes, it is officially open after more than seven years in the making.Wow. It’s about time and long overdue. According to a worker at Cafe Amrita, City workers were taking down the barriers last night around 1 AM.
Thank you to whomever said or convinced the City to open the circle now. Nice timing. Harlemites can enjoy the Circle during the summer months and on. I was out there today looking at every aspect of the Circle. It looks fabulous.
Below are pictures of locals looking around Harlem’s brand new Frederick Douglass Circle or better yet, come by and see it for yourself! Take the B/C to 110th Street/Catherdral Parkway or the 2/3 to 110 Street/Central Park North.
I have lived in Harlem for several years now and never have I seen holiday trees for sale at the base of Morningside Park, right on Cathedral Parkway between Manhattan Avenue and Columbus Avenue. I saw workers setting up and unloading various sizes of trees right after Thanksgiving. I believe this is a first to sell trees at this location. I don’t recall a tree company ever selling holiday trees here before. Does anyone else recall differently?
I assume the company that is selling the holiday trees is doing so because there is a new demand in this part of Harlem. We have posted in the past about how the area is changing with an increase in condos and restaurants!
HarlemCondoLife also saw holiday trees for sale on Frederick Douglass Blvd and 122nd. Last year, we spotted a ton of trees being sold on Lenox Avenue.
If you are interested in purchasing a holiday tree on Cathedral Parkway, they deliver and accept credit cards! And as always, if you know of other places in Harlem to buy holiday trees, please let us know. Happy Holidays!
