HarlemGal Inc received notice this morning that Manhattan Community Board 10 Economic Development Committee will be hosting a Harlem “Green” Economy Forum on Saturday, June 22, where representatives from local businesses, government agencies, educational institutions, residents of Harlem, and other stakeholders will have a discussion about the current and future challenges and opportunities for Harlem to participate in the “Green” Economy.
The forum will be divided into five areas covering the following: “Defining Harlem’s Urban Green Challenges and Opportunities;” “Green Policy Realities and Trends;” “Green Economic Environmental Assistance Programs;” “Green Commerce, Energy and Technology Opportunities;” “Environmental Stewardship Through Education,” and “What’s Your Role in Saving Our Planet.”
The forum will take place on the eighth floor of the Adam Clayton Powell Jr. State Office Building from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM, starting with a “Meet and Greet” with refreshments on the third floor.
The purpose of this forum is to raise the awareness for the residents of Harlem, as well as the general public, about the necessity of further developing a “Green” economy now and in the future.
Due to limited seating, individuals should RSVP by email to CB10ECODEV@GMAIL.COM as soon as possible.

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!
