Harlem parents, have you checked out Tribeca Pediatrics,which recently opened in Harlem on 114th Street and Frederick Douglass? I have taken my daughter twice already, seen all doctors and both experiences have been very good so far. I plan to continue to take my daughter there. On a recent visit, I collected the bios of the two doctors/pediatricians that are working at the Harlem branch of Tribeca Pediatrics. I am passing the bios along for those interested. Also, here is the phone number and email as well: 646-666-8248, firstname.lastname@example.org.

Need a kid project for Spring Break? Here’s a suggestion! The Laundromat Project is offering a five-day art class for Harlem middle-school kids from April 14th to 18th, which is Spring Break for NYC public schools. The art class begins at 9:30 am and runs to 3 pm. During this time, students will learn how to silkscreen and print with linoleum plates, and visit local museums and artist studios.
If you don’t have anything scheduled for your kids during Spring Break, this program is a nice option filled with art making and creative expression.
The deadline to apply was today, but it has been extended to March 24. Interested parents should apply here.
