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.

Tour of Harlem’s up-and-coming neighborhood on SPACEStv

YouTube’s SPACEStv channel (NYT) features a new episode of “Take Me Home”– an ‘ambush makeover’ show hosted by MadTV and frequent guest of Chelsea Lately, Arden Myrin.  In this newest episode, Arden gets to experience firsthand the up-and-coming Harlem Lenox Ave./Malcolm X Blvd. neighborhood when she is given a tour of a penthouse-like condo by a Harlem father and his baby daughter.  The home features a huge living area to accommodate for baby Fiona’s toys, a spacious home office, and a balcony overlooking the famous Sylvia’s restaurant.
