Thank goodness for Twitter followers. Over the weekend, one follower informed us that a new nail salon had opened in Central Harlem on 110th Street. It’s called Lilac Nail Salon & Spa. They are located at 301 Cathedral Parkway (110th Street), between Frederick Douglass Blvd and Manhattan Avenue.
Lilac offers manicure, pedicures, artificial nails, waxing and special treatments, such as nail art and ear candling. Their rates start at $10 and go all the way up to $70 for gels. Lilac is open from Monday-Saturday from 10 am to 9 pm, which is an hour or two later than Z Nails on 116th Street and Coco Nail Salon and Polished FingerTips on FDB; and on Sunday they are open from 11 am to 8 pm.
For more information, call 212-666-5888 or visit their website at www.lilacnyc.com.

Walking home this evening (Thursday night), I noticed two new shops getting ready to open on Frederick Douglass Blvd. At 301 Cathedral Parkway, right next to the State Farm Insurance office and near Frederick Douglass Circle, there is a Subway shop opening. The sign is up! Then at 2098 FDB, I noticed neon lights and signage were up saying Express Dry Cleaners.
I am happy to see the retail space is filling up along FDB. However, I was really hoping something else new and different for these type of commercial spaces, such as a 24-hour diner or an Asian restaurant (Thai, Japanese or Korean) or another vegetarian restaurant. Definitely not another Subway shop. What do you think? What would you like to see in some of these commercial spaces in Harlem?
