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.

HarlemGuy and Harlemista spent a few hours at Harlem Pop-Up ‘Holiday Bazaar’ today. We loved the huge Christmas tree out front, the cavernous interior space, the aura creativity that permeated the space, and the passion of the people representing the products and services on display. Highlights included learning about the new community bank Spring Bank, learning about artist Garry Grant, meeting the force behind artist AFineLyne and her great cards and paintings, catching up with the founder of Harlem Tavern and the folks from Lido, meeting Ebony of mikomyco and seeing their beautiful scarves in person, seeing the amazing artwork in the form of cards by Willie Mitchell, and the wonderful wares from bebenoir.

We love these Harlem Pop-Up events and look forward to the next one. Hoping they continue at least once a month. If you missed the first one check out our post here; Harlem Pop-Up ‘Green Market.’
