It’s true! CitiBike is past 110th Street in Central Harlem! There’s a bike station on the sidewalk between 111th and 112th Street on Frederick Douglass Blvd. CitiBike recently announced that they would be placing more bike stations uptown…and now they have.
The bike station is not taking up parking space, which should make locals happy. It’s taking up stroller space or walking space. I think the Village of Harlem can manage. Harlem has wide sidewalks, which is perfect for bike stations. No sign of the actual bikes yet, but that’s coming soon!

Burgers will not be cooking up in the space next to Chocolate Restaurant in Harlem. It will be Ganache Coffee! The signage is up in the commercial space between 119th and 120th Street on Frederick Douglass Blvd.
I guess Leon Ellis, the owner of practically everything on that particular block, changed his mind and decided to focus on coffee products instead-at least that’s what the signs are indicating!

One of the greatest actors on the planet was hanging out on Harlem's Restaurant Row last night, July 27. According to Row House's online social network, Meryl Streep and the cast of The Papers, Steven Spielberg's upcoming flick, were dining at their establishment. Here's the picture to prove it! Pretty awesome, don't ya think?

And God said, if you can’t beat them, join them…in the expensive Harlem real estate market that is. That’s what the Franciscan Handmaids of the Most Pure Heart of Mary are doing. They are selling their five-story building at 15 West 124th Street, for what I assume, will be for a good chunk of change. God Bless them.
FHM, one of three orders of mostly Black nuns in the United States, has put its Harlem location on the real estate market due to restructuring. The Harlem-based order celebrated its centennial last year and came to national prominence in 2016 on ABC’s “The View” with Whoopi Goldberg.
The Motherhouse was built-in 1909 as a high school and business college. In 1931, the property was sold to the Christian Brothers’ Institute and, in June 1944, it was transferred to the FHM. The building is a base for the congregation’s operations, and it houses some of the order’s members and the St. Benedict’s Day Nursery.
If you have some extra cash and are interested in a five-story, 18,216-square-foot functional school/dormitory building, set directly north of Marcus Garvey Park, track down CBRE Group? They are handling the sale of the property.

My kids and I were at Harlem Eat Up today. While strolling around, literally in our Bugaboo, we learned today that Whole Foods Market is opening up their Harlem store July 21, 2017. The two nice gentlemen working their booth informed us when we asked. However, there was no need to ask. There was a sign to the left of them that announced the date! See pic below.
I wonder whose going to check out the new Whole Foods uptown when it opens? I’m curious to see if they plan on offering the same kind of merchandise/products as a downtown store. We will soon find out!
The store will be located at 125th Street and Lenox Avenue! Right there by the 2/3 subway line!

Harlem villagers no longer have to turn to downtown to dine at a farm-to-table restaurant. Harlem dining patrons can now experience farm-to-table at Clay, located on the corner of 123rd Street and Manhattan Avenue.
What does farm-to-table mean? According to Clay Restaurant, it means “they source all of their produce, meats and fish from small, local suppliers. Nothing is mass-produced or served out of season. Wines and spirits also come from small producers, both seasoned veterans and ground-breaking upstarts alike, who care about their terrain and couple minimal intervention with maximum innovation.”
The New American restaurant opened up on the Harlem corner six weeks ago and is ready to serve locals (or anyone that walks in) with dinner and brunch on the weekends.
And if you’re curious as to where exactly Clay is sourcing, the list is posted on their website.
