Central’s Competitive Hours

By HarlemGuy

When I first moved here years ago there was one supermarket that I often frequented because it was on my way home from work – Central Market on 110th just West of Frederick Douglass Circle.   I like the store but it closed too early relative to my work hours.  However I recently noticed that they have expanded their hours.  Perhaps this is in response to the competition in the form of Fresh Direct?  Or is it perhaps to meet the needs of the renters in that building on 110th and Morningside.  In any event the expanded hours are good for everyone.

Harlem’s Frederick Douglass Boulevard is a finalist in Curbed Cup

By HarlemCondoLife
Pardon my lateness regarding this post. I have been on holiday…(still am) and have fallen behind on my blog posting. Any how, I have received several messages about our awesome neighborhood/community, ie the surrounding area of FDB, being chosen as a finalist in Curbed.com’s New York City neighborhood of the year for 2010. That is wonderful news. However, it’s quite not good enough. We need to win it! If you believe our community should win, click here to vote. My understanding is the poll is open until January 1, 2011!

I cast my vote! Did you?

Frederick Douglass Boulevard featured in The New York Daily News

By HarlemCondoLife
My favorite boulevard has been featured – once again – bright and big!  This time in The New York Daily News.  The article talks about all the “chic boutiques, restaurants and cocktail lounges the have cropped up on Frederick Douglass Boulevard above 110th St” in the last few years. It mentions Frederick Douglass Circle, MODSquad, bier international, 67 Orange, Patisserie des Ambassades and more.  The article even takes a page right out of HarlemGuy’s word playbook by stating “realtors call this bustling stretch of Eighth Avenue Harlem’s Gold Coast.” As with the other positive articles about Harlem, such as in The New York Times or The Wall Street Journal, I love this clip right up there with others!
