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 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.

Looks like Harlem will be getting a new pizzeria in the same location on Harlem Restaurant Row where “Pizzeria 123” was.  Our source tells Harlem Condo Life that construction is underway and word on the street is that it will be called “Fuel”.  Sounds good.

Now with 1 Forno (great pizza and priced well on 116th Street), Bad Horse Pizza (on the pricier side but delicious) and this new place, we will have a lot of options.  As far as I’m concerned you can never have too many Pizza spots!!

Stay tuned… for more information on Custom Fuel Pizza in Harlem.

*Location: Old pizza place, on 123 rd st was Pizzeria 123. (review)

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.

There has been plenty said of the power of attraction, some of it on point and some of it not. Understand what the power of attraction is, how it works, and how you can start to use it to get where you’re going. Like a director, our brains are constantly editing what information we consciously receive. Learn to be in charge of what you are receiving. TRAIN YOUR BRAIN by creating a clear mission and life path.

Gentle meditation, Journal Writing and Vision Board Direction.

Bring pictures of yourself and images which inspire you.

Walking through the neighborhood the other day on my way to work I noticed a local Harlem Cafe featuring African fare is closed.  Located at 2115 Frederick  Douglass Blvd.,”Cafe 2115″ tucked in-between Maharaja Palace and the Laundromat  has always been brightly lit with a flow of customers. I’ve only eaten their a few times in the couple plus years they have been opened. Here is a link to the not-so-positive Yelp reviews.   I dialed the telephone number and it is disconnected.  Papers are now up on the windows and work is in progress…

After the huge success of Harlem Tavern on Frederick Douglass Boulevard in Central Harlem, the owners have opened their latest location Heights Tavern in Washington Heights.  We have been waiting with anticipation for their new location to open and it finally did this past Thursday.  HarlemCondoLife will stop by and visit soon and look forward to checking it out with a review.  If it is anything like their Harlem Restaurant Row location on FDB they should do great.  Washington Heights has a lot of buzz lately and is a neighborhood to keep an eye on with recent businesses that have opened as well as restaurants coming soon.

Check out HEIGHTS TAVERN at 3910 Broadway in Washington Heights telephone #(619)501-3455.  Stay tuned for our follow up post and review.

For more information visit their website at Heights Tavern.
