Pardon my lateness regarding this post. I have been on holiday…(still am) and have fallen behind on my blog posting. Any how, I have received several messages about our awesome neighborhood/community, ie the surrounding area of FDB, being chosen as a finalist in Curbed.com’s New York City neighborhood of the year for 2010. That is wonderful news. However, it’s quite not good enough. We need to win it! If you believe our community should win, click here to vote. My understanding is the poll is open until January 1, 2011!
I cast my vote! Did you?

Coming out of the B/C subway line at 110th Street heading north, I quickly noticed there was construction happening at 2052 Frederick Douglass Blvd., which use to be Grand Liquors Inc. in Harlem. I quickly asked what was going into this space. The first response I received “it’s going to be a bank branch.” Then someone else on site said “it’s going to be a check cashing place.” Darn to both responses. I was hoping for something else, say a diner or Thai food. Wouldn’t that be good to have another food joint on Frederick Douglass Blvd?
