In December, I wrote about how Londel’s Supper Club is planning to open up a second location in Harlem, specifically in the Livmor Condos’ commercial space, located on the corner of 115th and Frederick Douglass Blvd. That blog post garnered some interesting/revealing comments. I recommend reading them.
Fast forward to today, January, where Crain’s New York is reporting that there is a serious dispute taking place between Harlem’s St. Stephen Community Church and the developer of the Livmor. It’s not a good situation, according to the article. And I am guessing the folks that bought (or those that might want to buy) in that building are a wee-bit pissed that this dispute is starting to be played out in the trade press.
I hope this get’s resolved soon. I went by Livmor Condos in Harlem January 9 to take a picture of where the church is supposed to be and as usual there was someone there, who clearly does not have a home and probably needs help, camping out on the front door. It is like that practically every day. And no, the person(s) camping out there is not someone from Occupy Wall Street.
God, hear my prayer. Help resolve this!
it’s a total disgrace. and now the developers are trying to rush londel’s (a bar) in there before the dispute is settled so that they don’t have to worried about the 200 foot rule – you’re not supposed to have bars within 200 feet of churches. what’s becoming of us!
People aren’t supposed to double park whenever and wherever they feel like it. It’s illegal but many Harlem worshippers do so without facing fines. You’re absolutely right…what’s becoming of us!
