Gas station lot in South Harlem now fenced off with construction to begin

Gas station lot in Harlem HarlemCondoLife

Pre snowstorm we took these photos of the Gas Station lot on 110th Street and Frederick Douglass Boulevard showing that it is now completely fenced off, boarded up and waiting for construction to begin.

There seems to be a variety of articles about what the development will be (rentals, condos, both), what it will include (affordable units, how many, community space, etc), and so on.  See our previous posts for the backstory here.

It would seem that this lot – which represents the last real estate property left along Central Park (West, South, East and North), will more likely be a new construction condominium complex.  A reliable professional source to HarlemCondoLIfe in real estate who is always ahead of the curve on many stories, agrees with this assessment.   There are several recent precedents for this configuration.  For example Fifth On the Park on 120th Street and 5th Avenue along Marcus Garvey Park includes condominiums, affordable rentals and a community church.

Stay tuned for more on this property in our Harlem Real Estate section.

Chloe the Yogi: The Amusement Park is the first edition of a five book series of electronic yoga adventure books that mirror the experience of a children’s yoga class. The story featuring Chloe the Yogi is an engaging vehicle for learning yoga poses and reinforcing the emotional support that children get through stretching, breathing, and role playing. Designed for the iPad, the Chloe the Yogi E-Book series was created as an answer to parents’ desire to see and experience what their children are learning in the increasingly popular yoga classes offered for children. It is the first book designed specifically to be enjoyed through electronic devices where both the child and the parent can benefit from seeing the movement in and out of the pose. The Chloe the Yogi E-book series is tailored toward children ages 3-7 and their parents.

Harlem getting the biggest free WiFi network in America

Harlem will soon follow Chelsea in having free outdoor Wifi.  Chelsea’s free Wifi is courtesy of Google.  Harlem’s free Wifi is courtesy of financier Glenn Fuhrman,  a former Goldman Sachs managing director who now heads MSD Capital and his wife Amanda, who donated $2 million to the city to pay for the wiring.

Ninety-five blocks of Harlem will be getting free outdoor Wifi.  Coverage spans from 110th to 138th Street between Madison Avenue and Frederick Douglass Boulevard.  The Harlem zone is ten times larger than the one in Chelsea.   It will be the the largest free WiFi zone in America.

110th to 120th streets will be wired in Dec.  The rest by May.  80,000 residents including 13,000 could benefit.

The city is hosting a contest with local school kids to pick out a name and password.

“Its pretty exciting,” Fuhrman told the News. “I’ve never done anything before where the mayor came to say thank you in person.”He said he chose Harlem because he knew the area from his philanthropic work with the Harlem Childrens Zone, a hugely respected non-profit in the area.
