You must not miss 2013 Soul Train Awards winner Nicole Henry at Ginny’s Supper Club this weekend, September 25th & 26th. Ms. Henry will light up the room with her pristine, soulful expression, and her always swinging band. Her rendition of Bill Withers’ “Use Me” is one of my favorites.
Get your tickets, catch one or more of the shows and let me know what you think!

President Bill Clinton kicks-off #HarlemEatUP festival, which is now well in progress, with a great opening speech.
A little bit of rain came through but it has passed and we are ready to eat some good food and try some great wine in this packed crowd!
Good to see Bill Clinton back in Harlem where he use to have an office on 125th street for many years.
Enjoy the festival!

The longest day of light in the year “summer solstice” is Thursday, June 21, 2015. This is also Father’s Day. Plan ahead and make special plans to celebrate summer solstice outdoors for Father’s Day and enjoy an extra long day of sunlight.
Summer solstice: from Latin sol “sun” and stitium “standing still”, because seen from the earth it looks like the sun halts in its tracks going northward, and moves back south.
The June solstice dates vary. For example, it’s on June 21 in 2015, but on June 20 in 2016. A June 22 solstice will not occur until 2203. The last time there was a June 22 solstice was in 1971.
*Keep an eye out for a new Podcast “Summer Solstice Compilation Mix” coming soon from HarlemHCL. Embellish your day and celebrate with a custom soundtrack of chillout, soul, house and latin music.
‘Solstice’ (Latin: ‘solstitium’) means ‘sun-stopping’, because the point where the sun appears to rise and set, stops and reverses direction after this day (Ill: Not to scale)

One of our favorite restaurants is Thai Market. They are adjacent to Harlem and deliver into Harlem. They are reliable, courteous, quick, well priced, and the food is always great, always consistent in taste, quality and quantity. I realized just how much I like them (and just how bad the conditions are in Harlem tonight) when I called and they told me they could not deliver to my area (which includes Restaurant Row) because it is too slippery. Which I totally understand.
If you have not tried this place, please do. It’s great.

We are happy to see the retro blue holiday lights back again this season! Harlem’s exclusive real estate service firms, Harlem Lofts, Inc. (Harlem Lofts) and Harlem Property Re+Development, Inc. (HPRe+D) and Harlem Property Management Inc., graciously decorating more than 30 Harlem Townhouses again this holiday season. “The design is the 1960’s large-retro bulbs I remember from my childhood (but we are using earth friendly LED versions now) says President of all three firms, Robert “Robb” Pair. As you walk around Harlem at night you will see the blue holiday lights outlining homeowners entire Townhomes.
Harlem Lofts Inc. and Harlem Property Management Inc. funds the project while their sister company Harlem Property Re+Development took care of the labor as they strung 4,000 lights total during this holiday project. “It started out with a few client homes’ in 2008 when the economy was in the dumps and we had extra workers that I didn’t want to lay off due to the recession.” “It was a win win for the times and it felt good to spread holiday cheer and boost the spirit and the look of our neighborhood during the rough times” says Robb Pair. Mr. Pair alluded that now it’s just a way to say Thank You to Harlem and his neighbors as both have been instrumental in his life and businesses in Harlem. He will be continuing this annual event into the future in a show of appreciation and festivity for the community in which he not only works, but also lives and is raising his 4 Harlem born boys, Nikhil, Jet, axel and Zaven.

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.
