Harlem’s Restaurant Row Goes Mobile – Here come the Foodtrucks!

Harlem Restaurant Row Goes Mobile

HarlemCondoLife is happy to see that “Harlem Restaurant Row” (the phrase, the concept, the place) is  maintstream, as friend to our publication Michael Feeney reinforces in his latest piece in the Daily News.

After several delays earlier this year, food trucks arrived on Frederick Douglass Boulevard.  It was a huge success.  Which translates into more trucks coming soon – starting May 10th.

We love a good food truck.  Our one hope is that Harlem businesses will broaden their brand and their reach by setting up and/or bringing their own food trucks to the party.  See our previous post Harlem Food Truck Rally.

Welcome one.  Welcome all.  Welcome food trucks to Harlem Restaurant Row.      See the full NY Daily News article below.
