One Morningside Park – Almost Sold Out in Harlem

phliving3

Down to 4 units left in One Morningside Park they are almost sold out.  The penthouse unit with sweeping views of both Central & Morningside Parks, is selling for a mere $5,900,000 with two terraces.  This building hit the ground running as one of the most desirable new properties in South Harlem on the market.  People who bought over a year and a half ago during construction have already resold with high profits on their investments.

The same developers are now focusing on their latest project one block over the neighboring property nicknamed as the gas station lot.   Located on the south, east corner of 110th and Frederick Douglass Boulevard it is the last lot left on Central Park in New York City.    Ground has already broken and a sales office will open soon with floorpans of units ready to sell.   The higher units with unobstructed city / park views will undoubtedly become the priciest condos in Harlem.

Harlem Review – Harlem Food Bar – Fried Chicken

unnamed 2

We stopped by HFB on Thursday to try the fried chicken after hearing the buzz about it and we were so happy we did.  Wow!.. and I’m not kidding.

The chicken was D-licious.  Moist, tasty and crispy but not greasy.  It was accompanied by creamy mashed potatoes and green beans that snap when you bite into them.  Luckily, we managed to score one of the last servings.  I had it with my favorite happy hour drink there, the Watermelon Martini which I like on the rocks.

All I could say during my meal to my husband was, ” I’m in heaven”. So see you there next Thursday as I can’t wait to go back for more! =)

Art In FLUX Pops Up at Aloft Hotel, Harlem

unnamed

Art In FLUX Harlem and Aloft Hotel launch a collaboration to promote visual artists in Harlem.  On the evening of December 3, 2013 Art In FLUX presents two Harlem artists, Andre Woolery and Ruben Natal-San Miguel, in the lobby of Aloft on their dedicated art walls.  Aloft has a company-wide commitment to support the local artistic community by devoting space to presenting art.  Art In FLUX hopes to utilize the Aloft Harlem space to present unique and compelling exhibits that create conversation and highlight the dynamic contemporary art culture in Harlem.

This inaugural exhibit at Aloft is titled NOTHING IS COLORPROOF after a piece by Andre Woolery of the same name.  “Nothing is Colorproof” is a triptych of a gun shooting a swirling rainbow of colors.   “A gun represents both chaos and order. In the chaos of my thoughts and ideas, color is the organizing order. It brings clarity to a vision. If my mind were the weapon and my ideas were the bullets… then color would be the force propelling it forward” states Andre.

Both Andre and Ruben reflect on culture, race, and gender through their own mediums – paint & pushpins and photography, respectively.  They each capture moments in time and exploit the use of color and light to convey a sense of hope.  Ruben chronicles Harlem by photographing the people and the architecture that are the fabric of the community.  Andre paints iconic images hoping to open our eyes to a new set of possibilities.    Together these two artists open a window on our society and awaken our consciousness.
