Harlem Flo – a flower boutique in Harlem

Harlem Flo flower shop (original) was one of the new businesses to open years ago on Frederick Douglass Boulevard’s restaurant row.  Now they are expanded in to a multi purpose boutique.  More and more FDB is becoming retail row as well as restaurant row.

With Harlem Flo combining both of their locations into one large expanded and renovated space, they are able to offer many different consumer needs.

The other day I stopped in for a blank card (my personal favorites are by local artist AFineLyne Lynn Lieberman), and walked out with a bag of gifts and a house plant.  They have great candles, books and art just to name a few.  If you are going to a dinner party, a housewarming  or have a special date, and need a gift they have a large selection of appropriate items including the traditional long stem roses.  As their window conveys, Garden ∙ Art ∙ Gifts.
See their website Harlem Flo Boutique.

For those of you who have outdoor space or just want summer flowers in your apartment window, one of the owners Louis Gagliano was telling me they will have flats of summer flowers in front of their shop from spring to fall.  They already have some early spring flowers available.  They have an expansive collection of cut flowers and healthy indoor orchids, cactus and a variety of house plants.

The combining of the two locations last summer was a smart move.  If you haven’t visited Harlem Flo yet stop in and pay them a visit.  Even if you do not need anything you will probably end up buying something.  Adjacent with Harlem Flo Boutique is the corner Coventry Garden.  This will look great in the summertime.

Gateway To Harlem on NY1 – Frederick Douglass Boulevard

Bier International

Last week NY1 showed an entire segment on the renewed energy on Frederick Douglasss Boulevard between 110th and 124th streets.   Businesses and residents working together to make the strip a destination for all of the neighborhoods shopping needs.  They quote “What you’re now seeing is Frederick Douglass Boulevard is really becoming  sort of the Gateway to Harlem“.  A phrase we developed here at HarlemCondoLife “Your Gateway To Harlem” when we created our site.   They go on to mention some of the businesses on the Boulevard including Bier International, Harlem Flo, Harlem Vintage, MCMB Cleaners, The 5 and Diamond Restaurant, Nectar, Lido Restaurant and Bar all of which we have mentioned and reviewed here at HCL.  They also include short interview clips with owners Jai Jai Greenfield of Harlem Vintage, Louis Gagliano of Harlem Flo, Marcelo Orbe of MCMB Cleaners and Selene Martinez of 5 and Diamond.  Here is a link to the video clip    NY1 video clip.

This area continues to stay in the news and get more recognition.  Congratulations to the businesses mentioned in this report and to all of the businesses on FDB and the surrounding area.
