As I was walking home this evening, I noticed this attractive marquis on the southwest corner of 116th and Frederick Douglass Blvd.  Silvana will be a “cafe boutique” featuring Middle Eastern food, international goods, and live music. Their website is not up yet but rumor has it that this latest addition to Frederick Douglass’ restaurant row  is scheduled to open later this month.

Scenes from the Storm

Most of Harlem was spared from the worst of Hurricane Sandy, but still there was evidence of the effects here. Happily many local businesses and restaurants were open and people were out in droves ready to support them.


Central Park was still closed and even from the perimeter,  it was obvious many trees were felled. Please be careful walking on that side.
