Looking to try acupuncture or need an acupuncturist close by in Harlem? There is a new clinic called Harlem Chi Community Acupuncture and it’s located at 360 West 125th Street, 2nd Floor. Harlem Chi Community Acupuncture had their grand opening on April 12.
Harlem Chi’s mission is to make acupuncture and Chinese Medicine accessible to more people and to reveal the power of this medicine to help with a variety of acute and chronic health issues-particularly when it is practiced as part of a general maintenance routine.
Acupuncture is administered via the insertion of very tiny, sterile, single-use disposable filiform (thin like thread) needles into specific points on the body that stimulate the body’s self-healing and self-regulating mechanisms. It can effectively treat both acute and chronic conditions, from stress reduction, aches/pain, women’s health (menopause, PMS, irregular menses, infertility, etc.), digestive issues, post chemo/radiation therapy, to sports injuries and sports enhancement.
To learn more about Harlem Chi, visit their website. Residents can also go online to make an appointment.

The last time Harlem resident Neil Patrick Harris tweeted out something, he eventually got it, which was a Harlem brownstone. Now he can’t get the wifi service he wants so who does he turn to? Twitter. About a day ago NPH tweets out, Verizon Fios service does not reach his new Harlem brownstone. Apparently the service stops about a block away. That’s weird. Why would Verizon Fios stop close to 125th Street in Central Harlem?
The tweet has been retweeted more than a 100 times. I think Harlem is going to be getting expanded Verizon Fios service soon! Don’t ya think?

Two New York City photographers have been documenting the City’s transformation for several years. It started with a book, titled “Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York,” in which they photographed mom-and-pop stores around the city, including select parts of Harlem, such as Lenox Avenue and 125th Street. They recently returned to these Harlem locations, and all the other original locations as well, to see what stands in those places now. Take a look below at the Harlem areas documented and see what’s happened.

According to The New York Post, Central Harlem knows how to use a catcher’s mitt when playing adult baseball-metaphorically speaking. The article claims Harlem is first in the category of most condom use followed by Bed-Stuy, then Crown Heights. “Condom use peaked in Central Harlem (43.3 percent) and Bedford-Stuyvesant and Crown Heights (40 percent).”
Thank goodness our community knows how to play baseball well. Lol! Apparently, the Upper Westside and Greenpoint don’t know or want to use a catcher’s mitt. Guess those neighborhoods want more children! Lol!

How many more dining places will open on Frederick Douglass Blvd in Harlem, the area between 110th and 125th Street dubbed restaurant row by HarlemGal? Well, apparently one, or two or three more Harlem businesses will open in this part of Harlem.
115 Restaurant Corp has filed a liquor license for the commercial space right across from Made En Harlem, which we’ve learned from DNAinfo will be a taqueria place. 115 Restaurant Corp will be located on the southeast corner of 115th and FDB. It’s in the building where apartments are renting for around $4k a month.
The only info we can find at the moment on 115 Restaurant Corp is the name is registered to someone who lives in Harlem. That’s all we know. As soon as we know more, we will pass along the info! And if you have any insight, feel free to chime in!
And Jeff Mays from DNAinfo reported recently that The Chipped Cup and Lenox Coffee will be expanding to Harlem’s restaurant row with The Mess Hall and Bearded Lady Espresso. These Harlem businesses will open near 118th and FDB!
So the answer is yes! More places can and are opening on FDB between 110th and 125th Street. However, it’s starting to get crowded out there!
