Did anyone see the supplement in The New York Times last week featuring the new condo developments in Harlem? It mentions The Livmor, Ellington on the Park, 2280 Frederick Douglass, and The Apex inside The Aloft Hotel.
I know these supplements can be a bit cheesy and there is no editorial involvement. However, in this particular case I want to say the banner rings true for me as well as the quote from Arthur Barnes of the National Jazz Museum in Harlem. "I think it is better to define the current phase of development in Harlem as a reawakening." Nicely said Mr. Barnes!
I have only seen hardcopies of this supplement. No luck finding an electronic version. If anyone has an electronic copy, feel free to share!

You know when The New York Times features a story on the front page of the Fashion & Style section, its like letting the “cat out of the bag”  or “spilling the beans ” so to speak…but in a good way.  In this week’s edition, there is a story called “Vital Signs Under the Viaduct” and it highlights all the new businesses that are in the area.

Harlemgal has frequented the area. I’ve chowed down on ribs at Dinosaur Bar-B-Que, battled for my groceries at Fairway and sipped on some smooth vino at the Hudson River Cafe – all have been fun and delightful experiences.  Now, on my to-do-list, Talay, which was also recently featured in NY Mag!
