Jack Dorsey (co-founder and co-creator of Twitter and founder and CEO of Square, a mobile payments company), connects with entrepreneurs with businesses based in Harlem, in this fascinating interview.
Featured businesses include Harlem Skin Clinic and Astor Row Cafe.
This interview follows Dorsey’s recent appearance at the Apollo, courtesy of Square’s “Let’s Talk” series, which we first posted about on December 13th 2013.
Says Dorsey about Harlem: “There’s an electricity in the air. It’s one of the reasons we chose Harlem for this event.”

I woke up early this morning, (having fallen asleep with the television on) to an episode of Toni on New York featuring our beloved Harlem. I thoroughly enjoyed the vivacious Toni’s exploration of our neighborhood – its important and colorful past and its vibrant present. I am a native and long time resident of Harlem and I learned a few things I did not know about this amazing neighborhood. The visit to the Schomburg and the backstage tour of Apollo with Billy Mitchell were
particularly interesting, It was also great fun to see Toni sample some of Harlem’s favorite foods, escorted on her “Taste of Harlem” tour by Neal Shoemaker, the founder of Harlem Heritage Tours, which ran the gamut from wings & waffles at Amy Ruth’s to to red velvet cake at one of my personal favorites, Make My Cake.. I had not previously seen this show, which is both hosted and executive produced by Toni Senecal, but I am now definitely a fan. You can check out the segment online or on Toni’s Facebook page.

It appears Tonnie’s Minis in Harlem has been closed for the last few weeks. A couple weeks ago friend to our blog DestinationHarlemTV mentioned it to us and I thought I’d give it a little time before posting to see if they would reopen. Passing by the other day they were still closed and I snapped this shot.
I spoke with the manager at their Broadway location today and was told the Harlem location is in fact closed but only temporarily. They hope to reopen again next week for business. Stay tuned… we will let you know as soon as we know when they have reopened so we can all go show our support!
