Harlem getting another Starbucks, new condo on 110th will house Seattle giant

   
 Strolling along 110th St. approaching Manhattan Avenue in Harlem, what will you see? A big sign that says Starbucks coming! It will open up two or three doors down west of Cafe Amrita, a long time favorite Harlem business.

Clearly, the Seattle based company sees that the cafe/coffee business is booming in this part of Harlem, along with mid to high end restaurants. In the last few years, several cafes have open up just along Harlem’s restaurant row, aka Frederick Douglass Blvd., such as Double Dutch, Silvana, Amaretto Espresso Bar, and Cafe Frederick Harlem Parlor.

Not sure I care for another Starbucks in this area. There are plenty of good coffee options now that exist! Agree or disagree?

Is 111 Central Park North getting a Dunkin’ Donuts?

The commercial space at 111 Central Park North, which is at the base of Harlem, is slowly filling up. The next business that is rumored to take up shop there is a Dunkin’ Donuts. There are work permits posted in the corner space, which faces Lenox Avenue and Central Park North, aka 110th Street, but the permits do not mention the coffee-chain company. However, the other businesses already in place in the commercial space at 111 Central Park North will say-if asked-a Dunkin’ Donuts is going there. The workers at this location see whose coming and going. My bet is they are right about whose moving into this space. Of course, nothing is final until the signage goes up. Stay tuned…
