I stopped by the Winery the other day for some nice Chardonnay. To my surprise I learned that they received their liqour license so I can now pick up my favorite brands of Vodka.
On my way home from work last night I noticed a commotion on 113th between Frederick Douglass Boulevard (FDB) and Morningside, which is right off Harlem’s Gold Coast / Harlem’s restaurant row.
As I walked towards the source of the commotion I overheard someone say “oh no, not again, what happened?”
But as I got closer it became clear that this was not a real crime scene but a function one – confirmed by an actor posing as policeman – shot on one of my favorite side streets in NYC.
Loving Harlem ™
The inexorable comes to Harlem.
The token booth At 110th gives way to the retro-looking metro card dispensers.
To some this is progress. To others not so much.
What is clear though is that in ways big and small we are living through a shift that our children’s children and beyond will read about, study and marvel at, for decades to come.
I was on my way to this (7/18) Sunday’s “Sundae Sermon” in MorningSide Park this afternoon.
As I made may way towards the stairs leading up to the event I was greeted by the image below.
Sunday Sermon is a summer musical event on selected weekends in Morningside Park featuring world famous DJs spinning soulful house music. For many this music is considered a spiritual experience. Ask anyone who’s been to Paradise Garage, Sound Factory, or Body & Soul to name just a few legendary venues. Bloggers from HarlemCondoLife will be posting more on this event soon.
