A reader tells us that a new bicycle shop is opening in South Harlem. According to the photos sent in by the reader, the bicycle shop will be called Velocissimo Cycle and will open up near the old Katrina Flower Shop space, which was on Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Blvd. between 112th and 113th Street. This will be the third bike shop to open in South Harlem after ModSquad on Frederick Douglass Blvd and Larry’s Bicycle Shop on 110th Street.
I looked up the name “Velocissimo” and it appears to be a street/racing bike brand. There is a lot biking gear available with the same name online.
Stay tuned here for more information. And a big thanks to our reader who sent in the photos! Much appreciated! Keep those tips coming in!

A few weeks ago I was enjoying a nice evening at Mojo in Harlem during their reverse happy hour. I noticed the wait staff had on these attractive t-shirts that said ‘I love Harlem.’ I quickly asked: where can I get that t-shirt? The person told me to go by Swing, the concept store located at 1960 Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Blvd. right on the corner of 118th Street. So I did just that! I quickly bought two!
I really wanted this t-shirt because it’s light weight, comes in cool colors and the words ‘I love Harlem’ are spelled out in cursive. Generally, you see those touristy tees with the big red heart on them and the say New York. That’s ok, but I wanted a t-shirt that was more specific and could be used as a conversation starter. This t-shirt from Swing will do. That’s why I bought two of them at $20 each. Not bad of a price. I have purchased items at Bebenoir and N Boutique for the same amount.
If you like these ‘I love Harlem’ t-shirts like I do, hurry up to Swing in Harlem. They just got a new shipment in where they are fully stocked with both adult and children’s t-shirts. The children’s tees are $15. And Swing has a French spelling tee for children that says ‘J’adore Harlem.’ I believe that translates to ‘I adore Harlem.’ How cute is that for a child?
If there are any questions about how much ‘I love Harlem,’ I will now point to my new tee!
