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.
