Heard it through the grapevine, One Morningside Park is already 40% sold.  A lot of showings are happening with brokers and clients for this condominium complex.  See our numerous previous posts for detailed information on our Harlem Real Estate Menu.  One Morningside is located on 110th Street and Manhattan Avenue in South Harlem.  Many contracts are out and 1 to 3 bedrooms have already been snatched up by eager buyers.

The sales office is now open by appointment only, to look at available floorplans for sale.   We can provide additional information if you’re interested, here at HarlemCondoLife.  Contact us via email at HarlemCondoLife@gmail.com.   A friend of our blog  just purchased a one bedroom one bath unit.  The fixtures and design looked quite nice and the site has a feature where you can see what the expected view will be from the unit you are interested in.

Here are recent pictures taken yesterday of One Morningside Park.  They have a ways to go but the structure is now fully erected.  They expect to be finished by January 2014.  Stay tuned for more on One Morningside Park.

photo[4]photo[3]Last night when I exited the subway at 125th street, there were groups of people looking at the sky and pointing. Of course, I looked up too……but saw nothing.  Shrugging my shoulders I started walking south when I saw a light streak across the sky, disappear behind a building , appear on the other side, then fly off into the distance.  Then I saw another.  And another.  Lights streaking through the twilight sky. I couldn’t make out what what they were. Drones? Saucers? The Spielberg movie “War of the Worlds” started running through the back of my head… I was getting concerned.

A man with a desperate look in his eyes stopped me on 123rd street and said “Please tell me you see these things flying in the sky. What are they??!! I can’t get a picture of them. I think I’m going crazy! Do you see them??!!”

“I do see them, this is freaky! WHAT ARE THEY???” One more, then another went diagonally through the sky toward Morningside Park. I tried to take decent shots for posterity but it was all happening so fast… I just kept it moving– turning quickly down 121st st, longing for safety of my apartment.

Finally, walking past P.S. 76 A Philip Randolph School, I happened upon the explanation. Neighbors were in the schoolyard launching Chinese Flying Lanterns.  Kids were laughing and running around, folks were clapping and oohing and ahhing with glee as each floated upward.

I vaguely wondered what the occasion was but mostly I sighed in relief (and slight embarrassment). My Harlem UFO fears were assuaged.

It has been a couple of months since our last update on One Morningside Park , the new condominium development on West 110th Street and Manhattan Avenue.  Comments are still coming in (both good and not so good) on previous posts while this building continues to go up at lightening speed.  Below is a photo of the building (framed by orange line) from the North side angle looking downtown and towards the West.  As you can see it is already a part of lower Harlem’s skyline.  I believe from our previous posts, it will rise a total of 22 floors upon completion.  That is the “Ariel” on Broadway showing in the background which is a soaring 37 floors.

A Broker (friend to HarlemCondoLife) informed us that he recently went to a courtesy preview of the building and they are going to have 69 units many with outdoor space and dirct views of Morningside Park and Central Park.  The sales office will be open officially in late August.  Stay tuned for future developments on One Morningside Park here at HarlemCondoLife.com.

Harlem Condo Life continued to tour a few favorite spots in Harlem and the surrounding nabes to bear witness to hurricane Sandy’s aftermath.  Below are a few pictures and a video.

This video shows where the Hudson River flooded over the West Side Highway to the median which divides uptown from downtown traffic around 115th Street.

Hundreds of thousands of evacuees have already rushed to emergency shelters with their loved ones, and your support is desperately needed to help keep as many people safe from the storm as possible.  Click here to get involved or donate to The Red Cross.

DJ Stormin’ Norman’s fabulous Sundae Sermon brought the happy party people once again to Morningside Park this past Sunday with incomparable guest DJ’s Louie Vega and Kevin Hedge. It was another packed house and perfect weather!

Unfortunately this was the last Summer 2012 event on the Hill in Harlem but Norman hinted that they are looking to have a final blast in another park in the next couple weeks so definitely check the website for further details.

Sundae Sermon is back this coming Sunday August 26th at 2 – 7pm.  We are very happy to hear that it will be held in Morningside Park at it’s usual location.  This Sunday will feature DJ MKL, DJ Tommy Bones, DJ Des Uno alongside DJ Stormin’ Norman.  Located on Morningside Drive (upper level) and 114th Street Harlem, New York.  Just look for the large crowd listening and dancing to great soulful house, classics and afroBeats… you’ll find it.

Bring a picnic basket and your family your friends or come by yourself, this event is for everyone.  Last Sundae Sermon in July was very crowded and I assume this one will be to, so if you want to set up a spot on the lawn come early.

Sundae Sermon July 2012

Hope to see you all there.  A big shout out to Stormin’ Norman and his ongoing efforts to make this #1 family afternoon party happen for our Harlem community.  Let’s all go celebrate!
