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.

Sweet!

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.

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.

All aboard.

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.

I noticed the sign below on a recent bike ride through Morningside Park.

I don’t believe I’ve ever seen such a sign in any City Park. When I first moved to Harlem I loved the fact that residents made frequent use of Morningside Park for BBQs.  But I always worried that one day that lovely right of Summer would be quashed by the City.
I am pleased to see that BBQs will continue to be a unique and festive family and food oriented feature of Morningside Park and life in Harlem.
