Harlem brownstone on 113th Street converting to luxury rental apartments

Looking for an apartment in a Harlem brownstone? It appears several will become available on West 113th Street between Frederick Douglass Blvd and Manhattan Avenue. Taking my daughter for a stroll over the weekend, I noticed a big construction sign that read “New Destination 320 West 113th Street” in front of a Harlem brownstone. And of course, the sign also included the word “luxury” so you can bet whatever apartments are carved out will be expensive. See photos below for website and phone number to inquire further.

Neil Patrick Harris says no Verizon Fios available in Harlem…at least for his home

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?
