More and more celebrities continue to flock to Harlem New York.  Neil Patrick Harris Harlem days aren’t over—in fact, they’re just about to begin!  Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka who recently purchased property in Harlem in 2013, “Officially” move to New York.

The Burtka-Harris family is trading sunny California for Harlem, NY.  Neil told Us Weekly last year “Our plan is to reroute ourselves and have our kids start to go to school here.  Neil is also starring in Broadway’s Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

I hope that many of the new hot and hoppin restaurants located on Harlem’s Restaurant Row, Vinateria, Harlem Food Bar, The Cecil, Maison Harlem, Cedric Bistro, The 5 and Diamond, Melbas, Jado Sushi, The Park 112, and all the many other great spots throughout New York, will extend child friendly accommodations.  Two places in particular that are very kid friendly in Harlem are Bier International on FDB and Harlem Shake NYC on Lenox Avenue.

Coming to Harlem – 100,000 Square Foot Development

A reader of HarlemCondoLife informed us about a new 100,000 square-foot development that will be opening at 301-303 125th Street and Frederick Douglass Boulevard.  The four story building will include a DSW discount shoe store, Joe’s Crab Shack restaurant and Blink Fitness expected to be finished in 2013.  With a Red Lobster opening up next to the Apollo Theater we will soon have two new seafood restaurants on 125th Street.

We recently wrote about the plans for a Whole Foods to be one of many new businesses coming into the development to be built in the vacant lot on 125th Street and Lenox Avenue.  With the landmark Apollo Theater and all of the traffic  that it brings from all over the city I imagine this will only increase this busy 125th Street area.  WIth the heavily trafficked restaurants on Lenox Avenue, Red Rooster, Sylvia’s, Corner Social and the newly opened Les Ambassades there are plenty of great restaurants to eat at after an afternoon of shopping.  Also Cedric Bistro and Billie’s Black on 119th Street and too many restaurants to list on Frederick Douglass Boulevard which is now referred to as Harlem’s Restaurant Row.

Harlem’s 125th Street is a dynamic retail neighborhood with a wide variety of restaurants and a tremendous amount of foot traffic surrounding the area.  With subway lines on both Lenox Avenue and Frederick Douglass Boulevard, the amount of retail space, community residents and colleges in the surrounding area it is not surprising that Harlem is starting to attract more chain retailers.
