Harlem, listen up! A reader contacted me this morning reminding me tomorrow (June 26) is a very important day for Harlem and the newly drawn 13th Congressional District of New York City, and could this blog remind Harlem locals to get out tomorrow and vote! Absolutely! We all need to get out and vote tomorrow and here is your reminder!
What’s at stake in tomorrow’s primary election? We, the voters, get to decide who is going to win the Democratic Seat for Congress. Representative Charlie Rangel, who holds the seat now, faces Democratic State Senator Andriano Espaillat and Clyde Williams.
So no matter how your day is lined up tomorrow or no matter what your political views are, please, please, please pencil in voting and don’t forget to deliver on going to the polls to vote June 26. The outcome of the 13th District is in your hands. Let’s seize the moment!
And a big thank you to the reader for sending in this story idea! Much appreciated!

If you did not have a chance to swing by Best Yet Market, located at 118th and Frederick Douglass Blvd., today for their grand opening…not to worry. Fellow HarlemCondoLife blogger, Austin2Harlem, walked by and photographed the ceremonial event!
Several VIPs attended and ABC’s Channel 7 was present. The most notable VIP was Congressman Charlie Rangel, and of course Mr. Best too! Rangel said the new supermarket created 100 plus jobs and other speakers emphasized that Harlem is now getting quality, healthy food at low prices, including fresh produce, meat and fish.
HCL would like to add that Karrott at 117th and FDB and Organic Forever at 112th and FDB offer Harlemites healthy food options as well for reasonable prices.
This concludes the Best Yet blogging saga. May we all go forward now and shop and dine at all our local Harlem businesses! Stay tuned for a post about Chez Lucienne and upcoming films at El Museo del Barrio!
