Harlem has another neighborhood association in The North Star


Some Harlem residents have come together to create a new neighborhood association and it’s called the North Star Neighborhood Association. North Star is named after Frederick Douglass’s abolitionist newspaper, “The North Star,” and its mission will focus on the area of Harlem that also bares his name, Frederick Douglass Blvd. The exact area North Star plans to serve are along Frederick Douglass Boulevard from West 110th Street to West 124th Street, between Morningside Avenue and Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard.

If you are interested in learning more about North Star click here or interested in participating, they are having their inaugural meeting Tuesday, March 27th at 7:30 PM at the Harlem PAL, located at 441 Manhattan Avenue near West 119th Street.

  1. Interesting that at the first meeting the police are asked to come to deals with what they do not like about the community.
    Also, Joshua S. Bauchner is apparently listed as one of the founders of this organization.
    In an article in the NYTimes he apparently had no concept of the displacement of the indigenous Community by those with money who find Harlem cheaper to live and who want to change the community to their liking. – “No Longer Majority Black, Harlem Is in Transition” http://nyti.ms/H06aJq

  2. @FriendsofMacombs thanks for commenting. By chance did you go to this meeting? I haven’t heard a peep on how it went other than your comment.
