I went by Custom Fuel Pizza
this afternoon since today is the day it opened in Harlem on 123rd and FDB. I ordered the classic pizza with wheat crust, sausage and garlic cheese. It was yummy.
The place looks great too. The interior is fun and very welcoming. And ordering pizza is…oh so simple. Just follow the five steps!
Custom Fuel Pizza is a nice addition to Harlem’s restaurant row. Go check the place out yourself and let us know what you think!

I walked by Custom Fuel Pizza yesterday, the new pizza joint that will be located at 123rd and Frederick Douglass Blvd., and there was a sign posted on their door that said opening date is now scheduled for February 26. The previous date was scheduled in late January.
The sign also noted there were employment opportunities still available and to inquire within.

The article even states people are moving to Harlem because folks are priced out in other parts of the City. Insane!
Manhattan is out of control expensive with no end insight. Mayor-elect De Blasio your up!

There’s a new Harlem business in town and it’s designed to make those house/apartment chores a bit more manageable. It’s called Mobile City Services and it was founded by a twenty-something named John Henry. What is Mobile City Services? It’s a Concierge company that provides a range of services from Dry Cleaning, Housekeeping, and Dog Walking straight to the door of busy professionals.
In early 2012, Henry began noticing that the only bit of spare time he had was being spent on tedious tasks at home. Similar to many urban residents, Henry relied on a job that required suits, which meant regular visits to the dry cleaner. Also, his long work hours meant leaving before the local cleaners opened, and arriving after they closed. Mobile City Services aims to solve this problem by providing door to door service.
According to a news release, Mobile City Services is trusted by movie and film crews shooting in New York. Clients include: HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, and the new production of Annie staring Cameron Diaz and Jamie Foxx.
Interested to learn more about this Harlem business and it’s services? Check out their website or friend them on Facebook.
