88 Morningside: Top-Selling Harlem Development

By HarlemGuy

If you are looking to check out some real estate in Harlem today check out 88 Morningside on the corner of Morningside Avenue and 122nd Street.

According to recent reports, out of 29 new residential developments in Harlem listing new units in the second, third and fourth quarters of  2010 and the first quarter of 2011, 88 Morningside beat the competition by selling a total of 32 units during that time period.

88 Morningside (www.88Morningside.com) is a modern, 12-story residential building featuring 73 units in a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom homes.  The remaining 35 units range in size from approximately 737 – 1,577 square feet and in price from $415,000 – $880,000.   My favorite quote from all the marketing materials is as follows:

The development is situated in a community offering a vibrant scene with numerous restaurants, lounges, shops and services.  The Studio Museum in Harlem, H&M, Citarella and Fairway are within walking distance and the nearby Harlem Piers leads to the beautiful Hudson River bike paths and Riverside Park.

H&M and Uptown Magazine celebrate the grand re-opening of H&M Harlem

H&M and Uptown Magazine celebrated on July 29 the grand re-opening of H&M in Harlem, which is located on 125th Street between Lenox Avenue and Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. Blvd. The hosts packed the fashion retail store with more than 400 VIP guests, who were treated to great music, food and drinks and a first-hand look at all the clothing inside the store.

Some of the cool guests I was introduced to included Misa Hylton-Brim, a fashion stylist, who has worked with Queen Latifah and Lil Kim, Candi Lynn, a hip-hop artist and DJ Steel, a well-known spinner from the tri-state area. I also ran into well-known locals from Harlem, such as Melba Wilson, the owner of Melba’s. Her and I were chatting it up. Melba told me she catered the entire Target celebrity event that took place July 20. That’s awesome! Good for Melba.

Aside from the fascinating people at this event, the clothes were just as interesting. H&M had the whole place completely stocked with summer and fall clothes. There is so much to choose from-whether you’re looking for clothing for young adults, teenagers or kids clothing-H&M will have it and for a low price. I asked Hylton-Brim what she thought of the retailer. “It’s a great place to shop, not only for their reasonable prices, but for their quality of clothing.”
