Meet the Easter Bunny this weekend in Harlem! There is an Easter Egg Hunt planned this Saturday for kids 1-8 where fun games will be offered along with the opportunity to meet and have a photo with the Easter Bunny. To attend, a registration is required. See details below:
Date: Saturday, March 28, 2015
Time: 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Place: P.S. 76 Gymnasium – 220 W. 121st Street

This event is sponsored by Renaissance Church, however there is nothing religious about the event. The goal is to serve families in the community.
First it was restaurants opening in Central Harlem. Then coffee shops followed. The next trend seems to be hat stores! A new hat store recently opened at 139 West 116th Street in Harlem called Shatzi Life. They sell everything from hard hats to scarves and gloves to snowboarding hats for adults and kids. It is a very cute place! I bought a cute reindeer hat for my daughter and a Coal hat for me. Coal hats are made in Seattle, WA!
If you need a unique gift for someone, this boutique hat store is a nice option to consider for shopping! Here is their website as well!
Happy Holidays Harlem!

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.

The NYC Department of Parks and Recreation has scheduled a ribbon cutting ceremony in Harlem tomorrow, Aug. 28 at 11:30am to celebrate the renovation of Playground 123 in Morningside Park. Interested participants should stop by.
According to DNAinfo New York, “the playground, in Morningside Park at 123rd Street near Morningside Avenue, was rundown and had little more than asphalt pavement and chain-link fences when construction began in August 2012. After $3.7 million in renovations, the playground reopened [in July 2013] with new swing sets, including adaptive swings for disabled children, as well as castle-like play equipment, a basketball court, a playhouse and sprinklers.”
To learn more about Playground 123 in Morningside Park, check out Destination Harlem’s write-up .
Back in March 2013, HarlemGal Inc blogged that Tribeca Pediatrics will be opening up a branch in Harlem on the corner of 114th Street and Frederick Douglass Blvd. They are moving into the old 99 cents store space, which has now started to be transformed. That was very visible today. When walking by, pedestrians can see a new glass store front.
Tribeca Pediatrics signed a 10-year, 2,500-square-foot lease at 2111 Frederick Douglass Boulevard in Harlem. On their website, it says coming soon and lists two individuals, who will be staffing the Harlem office. Go here for more information about the Harlem branch of Tribeca Pediatrics.
HarlemGal Inc loves blogging about all things positive related to Harlem. However, there are going to be some instances where the Harlem news is not all roses. For example, this blog is hearing some sad news on and offline about Kidberry, a children’s education center located on Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Blvd between 122nd and 123rd Street. The rumor mill, which HarlemGal Inc is practically 90 percent sure its not a rumor based on sources, is that Kidberry in Harlem is closing its doors for good. Done. Finished, etc.
Reasons for the closing have not surfaced…yet. Our guess is that will happen in due time. As soon as we know why Kidberry in Harlem is closing, we will pass that information along.
Now for the big questions. Where will Harlem parents take their infants and toddlers for educational classes? Is there some place else close by? Thoughts? HarlemGal Inc would love to hear your feedback? Chime in…
