One of what must be one of the few remaining empty lots in South Harlem is no longer. Construction has begun on 112th Street between Frederick Douglass Boulevard and Manhattan Boulevard. There is a sign that says affordable housing and another that has a developer contractors listed. What will it be?
A tall slender tower? A brownstone? A prefab of some kind perhaps. Time will tell. Anything is possible.

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.

A reader of HarlemCondoLife informed us about a new 100,000 square-foot development that will be opening at 301-303 125th Street and Frederick Douglass Boulevard. The four story building will include a DSW discount shoe store, Joe’s Crab Shack restaurant and Blink Fitness expected to be finished in 2013. With a Red Lobster opening up next to the Apollo Theater we will soon have two new seafood restaurants on 125th Street.
We recently wrote about the plans for a Whole Foods to be one of many new businesses coming into the development to be built in the vacant lot on 125th Street and Lenox Avenue. With the landmark Apollo Theater and all of the traffic that it brings from all over the city I imagine this will only increase this busy 125th Street area. WIth the heavily trafficked restaurants on Lenox Avenue, Red Rooster, Sylvia’s, Corner Social and the newly opened Les Ambassades there are plenty of great restaurants to eat at after an afternoon of shopping. Also Cedric Bistro and Billie’s Black on 119th Street and too many restaurants to list on Frederick Douglass Boulevard which is now referred to as Harlem’s Restaurant Row.
Harlem’s 125th Street is a dynamic retail neighborhood with a wide variety of restaurants and a tremendous amount of foot traffic surrounding the area. With subway lines on both Lenox Avenue and Frederick Douglass Boulevard, the amount of retail space, community residents and colleges in the surrounding area it is not surprising that Harlem is starting to attract more chain retailers.
