Let’s go canoeing at Harlem Meer

Not sure what to do today, Sunday (July 15) with your Harlem kid? How about taking them canoeing at Harlem Meer? It’s FREE and it is happening today in Central Park North! NYC Parks and Recreation is offering free canoeing from noon to 3 pm at Harlem Meer, which is located near the entrance of Central Park North, aka 110th Street, and Lenox Ave. If you’re coming from downtown, take the 2/3 subway line to the 110th Street subway stop.

I witnessed this a few years ago and blogged about it. It looked so much fun! Whatever you do today, have a wonderful Sunday, Harlem!


Chris Noth of Sex and the City stops by the Corner Social in Harlem

If you’re not on twitter and following fellow Harlemites or Harlem businesses, such as the Corner Social located on Lenox Ave and 126th Street in Harlem, this blogger highly recommends it. Why? This particular social networking tool always seems to have interesting news about what’s going on in Harlem. For example, Corner Social, formally known as Lenox Social, tweeted last night that Chris Noth, the actor famous for playing Big on Sex and the City, did some socializing last night (May 13) in Harlem at…where else? You guessed it, Corner Social! That’s very cool! I guess Chris Noth knows some of the owners of restaurants in Harlem since he’s in the business as well, or maybe he likes coming uptown to hang because it’s just as fun, if not more, than being downtown.

If you haven’t stopped by the Corner Social in Harlem, better hurry up now. Once celebs start showing up, dining establishments almost always experience a spike in attendance. I am going back this week, pronto! See you there!

Lenox Social coming soon to a busy Harlem corner near you

Harlem is getting another bar and grill soon, but this time it’s going to be on Lenox Avenue, caddy corner to Red Rooster Harlem and directly across the street from Sylvia’s. Lenox Social is the name of this upcoming place and its going to be located on the northwest corner of 126th and Lenox Ave-321 Lenox Ave to be exact. You may have seen the signage outside already when you walk by?

“Lenox Social will be a gathering spot where friends, co-workers, neighbors and families can count on quality food and drinks at reasonable prices,” says Anahi Angelone, a Harlem resident and owner and general manager of Lenox Social.

HarlemGal Inc. reached out to Angelone recently and she has shared some details with us on her new business. According to Angelone, Lenox Social in Harlem will have “a twenty-two foot long bar with 18 traditional and craft beers on tap, and a great cocktail and wine menu. It will have a fireplace, banquette and communal seating, flat screen televisions as well as projectors and drop down screens for special events.” Lenox Social also plans to have WiFi for customers during the day.

As for when Lenox Social will open, all Angelone would say is “they intend to open in the very near future.” So stay tuned Harlemites. We are about to get another new place to hang and dine at!
