HarlemCondoLife is honoured to be featured in AMNewYork’s excellent two full-page spread on South Harlem (SoHa). The piece by reporter Lisa Fraser appeared on 3/14 in AMNewYork’s paper and digital editions.
The piece is well written and provides a great deal of history and current reference information about this little corner of the village of Harlem. Including real estate, transportation, education, shopping, eating, the arts, the parks, the people and “the buzz”.
Below is one of several quotes:
The article makes clear that this slice of Harlem continues to mature from when we first coined it Harlem’s Restaurant Row into something even more special. A place that we – the current writers for HarlemCondoLife.com, all of whom are original founders as well – call “home”.
We want to thank AMNewYork’s Lisa Fraser for reaching out to us a few weeks back and including HarlemCondoLife.com in the research for her article.
