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.

February is Heart Health Month, and unfortunately, most of us know someone who has heart disease or has had a stroke. Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States – for both men and women.
In the U.S., one in every three deaths is from heart disease or stroke. In our beloved community of Harlem, the prevalence of heart disease and the risk of death from heart disease is even higher than the national average. There are things that each of us can do to improve our heart health.
Let’s fight back against heart disease and strokes by making heart-healthy choices about what we eat and how we live. For more information about how to make heart healthy choices, check out the New York City Department of Health or American Heart Association websites.
