One of what must be one of the few remaining empty lots in South Harlem is no longer. Construction has begun on 112th Street between Frederick Douglass Boulevard and Manhattan Boulevard. There is a sign that says affordable housing and another that has a developer contractors listed. What will it be?
A tall slender tower? A brownstone? A prefab of some kind perhaps. Time will tell. Anything is possible.

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.

A friend to our blog let us know that an episode of “Selling New York” will air tonight on the HGTV channel with many Harlem businesses represented.
From what I am told, you can expect to see on this particular episode the very popular 5 and Diamond Restaurant on Frederick Douglass Boulevard, Cedric French Bistro located on 119th Street, and Harlem’s famous Make my Cake on 116th Street.
Here is a clip from an episode of SELLING NEW YORK.
Already a fan of HGTV’s “Selling New York”, “House Hunters” and “House Hunters International” we are especially looking forward to seeing “our Harlem” represented on this new episode of Selling New York. FYI, this is the third time Harlem has been represented on Selling New York. We here at HarlemCondoLife are not at all surprised to see more attention coming to Harlem.
Make sure to tune in tonight to “Selling New York” on HGTV at 6:30pm.

Correction: We went by the supermarket this morning for the Grand Opening. Nothing was happening. A cashier told us it is scheduled for March 5 at 10 AM. We now have more advance notice so mark your calendars!
A while back a reader provided the details on Best Yet’s grand opening! It is happening today, March 1, 2010 at 11 AM! Here are the details again:
GRAND OPENING/RIBBON CUTTING CEREMONY

And take a look at all the positive comments that have been posted regarding Harlem’s newest supermarket! It appears unanimous that most readers really like the supermarket. I know I do!
