Back in 2012, I blogged about one of my favorite kid accessories store by Harlem resident Alex Gizela, who founded Cabbages & Kings. I had zero Harlem babies then and I loved her apparel on the spot. Two kids later, three scarves, two sets of leg warmers and four pairs of socks from Cabbages & Kings, I still adore all the items offered.
More importantly, my kids love the product…and all of the items are hand made by artisans that reside in Central Mexico and in the Andean Valleys of Peru and Bolivia. Most pieces are a collaborative effort between Cabbages & Kings and the artisans to create pieces based on the culture’s traditional patterns and design.
Check out the merchandise for yourself. And oh, did I tell you that Cabbages & Kings started their 2017 #blackfriday/holiday sale. For those that follow HarlemGal online, there is a 30 percent discount. Use code: HeyMama30. (Please note the code is for a limited time only)
Enjoy! And let the holiday season begin!

Did anyone notice that Yatenga French Bistro in Harlem was closed recently? Apparently, they were. The owners of Yatenga and now Silvana tell HarlemGal Inc that Yatenga’s kitchen was closed for about a week for remodeling and redesigning of their new menu! No worries. Yatenga in Harlem has reopened and we have their new menu. Take a look! Available no more are the classical French bistro items, but “more Mediterranean influences from Greece, Spain, France, Morocco, Italy and more!”

We have more Harlem real estate news to report. HarlemGal Inc received a news release recently announcing that Vornado Realty Trust has “completed the previously announced sale of a parcel of land known as Harlem Park located at 1800 Park Avenue (at 125th Street) in New York City for $66 million…” The sale was finalized in the last 48 hours.
With the sale of 1800 Park Avenue completed, we can all now assume that the previously reported plans to develop this area will now move forward. According to several online reports, “Bruce Eichner is planning an 80/20 residential project at the Harlem Park site. Eichner has been in the midst of an architectural competition for the planned development at 1800 Park Avenue and 125th Street.”
