Lee Lee’s Baked Goods in Harlem has been featured in the media among various publications, but now Alvin Lee Smalls and his bakery at 283 West 118th Street are the subject of social media and small business. A graduate student at the CUNY School of Journalism interviewed several individuals, including HarlemCondoLife.com, about the events that occurred back in May 2010 when Lee Lee’s almost closed and asked “what made the boutique Harlem bakery reopen? Was it Social Media?” Smalls answers those questions here!

We received some wonderful news at 12:45 AM this morning about our favorite Harlem baker, Alvin Lee Smalls.. A reader left the following message:

“It is time to celebrate again, Lee, Lee’s Baked Goods is reopening on Saturday, June 19, 2010. The phone number [to order] all of your favorites is; 917-493-6633.”

I called the number above to confirm and it is true.  I spoke to Mr. Lee himself. He said he is opening after 10 AM and will be offering all the same products and more.

I asked what happen that he was able to reopen after a month of closing.  He said he was able to catch up a little financially.

This is great news for Mr. Lee and all of us!  Spread the word! Lee, Lee’s Baked Goods is reopen for business!!! Visit the bakery at 283 West 118th Street in Harlem.
