Harlem Flo – a flower boutique in Harlem

Harlem Flo flower shop (original) was one of the new businesses to open years ago on Frederick Douglass Boulevard’s restaurant row.  Now they are expanded in to a multi purpose boutique.  More and more FDB is becoming retail row as well as restaurant row.

With Harlem Flo combining both of their locations into one large expanded and renovated space, they are able to offer many different consumer needs.

The other day I stopped in for a blank card (my personal favorites are by local artist AFineLyne Lynn Lieberman), and walked out with a bag of gifts and a house plant.  They have great candles, books and art just to name a few.  If you are going to a dinner party, a housewarming  or have a special date, and need a gift they have a large selection of appropriate items including the traditional long stem roses.  As their window conveys, Garden ∙ Art ∙ Gifts.
See their website Harlem Flo Boutique.

For those of you who have outdoor space or just want summer flowers in your apartment window, one of the owners Louis Gagliano was telling me they will have flats of summer flowers in front of their shop from spring to fall.  They already have some early spring flowers available.  They have an expansive collection of cut flowers and healthy indoor orchids, cactus and a variety of house plants.

The combining of the two locations last summer was a smart move.  If you haven’t visited Harlem Flo yet stop in and pay them a visit.  Even if you do not need anything you will probably end up buying something.  Adjacent with Harlem Flo Boutique is the corner Coventry Garden.  This will look great in the summertime.

A reader tipped us off to the latest happenings with Best Yet in the SoHa Bldg at 118th Street and Frederick Douglass Blvd. Based on the information below, Best Yet is moving along and they appear to want to keep the community in the loop…and so does one of HarlemCondoLife’s readers. A big thanks to tero for the information!

Holiday trees available on Harlem's Cathedral Parkway

I have lived in Harlem for several years now and never have I seen holiday trees for sale at the base of Morningside Park, right on Cathedral Parkway between Manhattan Avenue and Columbus Avenue. I saw workers setting up and unloading various sizes of trees right after Thanksgiving. I believe this is a first to sell trees at this location. I don’t recall a tree company ever selling holiday trees here before. Does anyone else recall differently?

I assume the company that is selling the holiday trees is doing so because there is a new demand in this part of Harlem. We have posted in the past about how the area is changing with an increase in condos and restaurants!
HarlemCondoLife also saw holiday trees for sale on Frederick Douglass Blvd and 122nd.
Last year, we spotted a ton of trees being sold on Lenox Avenue.
If you are interested in purchasing a holiday tree on Cathedral Parkway, they deliver and accept credit cards! And as always, if you know of other places in Harlem to buy holiday trees, please let us know. Happy Holidays!
