The January 8th edition of AMNY had a wonderful article written by Marleene Naanes entitled “Harlem’s Hot ‘pocket'” (PDF format – start on page 20).
It’s all about the HOT little Southwest corner of Harlem on Frederick Douglass Boulevard (aka 8th Avenue; the “continuation” of Central Park West above 110th street) from 110th to 125th.
The GREAT NEWS about this southwestern corridor (the “Gateway To Harlem” also known as “SOHA” for South Harlem) only gets BETTER and BETTER with each passing day.
It’s HOT AND POPPIN’!
The article features informative mini reviews of various establishments including museums, lounges and restaurants: The Studio Museum, 67 Orange, Africa Kine, Patisserie Des Ambassades just to name a few.
Below is an excerpt.
“Anyone who hasn’t walked through this pocket of Harlem in a while certainly won’t recognize it today.
With health-food shops, upscale lounges, a trendy wine bar and florist, this neighborhood could be mistaken for a downtown enclave. A Starbucks, a soon-to-open Subway shop and new banks have only furthered its gentrification.
‘Harlem got a lot more convenient,’ said lifelong resident Sharon Grimes, 39. ‘You have uptown life with a downtown feel.’
‘It’s the best pocket in Harlem,’ said Carlos Aguila, owner of health food store Karrot, which he opened four years ago when crack still had a hold on the neighborhood. ‘It’s an aggressive pocket of gentrification and revitalization.’
Young single folks and new families alike have flocked to the area, which boasts nearby parks, restaurants galore, new lounges and bigger Manhattan homes for less money. Residents say they love that people know each other and aren’t afraid to say hi to passing strangers.”
