Some places in Harlem are ahead of the curve when it comes to environmental coolness. Lenox Coffee is clearly one of those places. They posted today on Facebook that they are now offering boxed water, aka water in a milk like carton. They are selling the brand, Boxed Water is Better, which donates 10 percent of their profits to reforestation projects and a further 10 percent to water relief foundations.The boxes of water are recyclable and consumers are contributing to a smaller carbon footprint! Very cool.
To learn more, check out Lenox Coffee’s Facebook page or better yet stop by to purchase boxed water. They are located at 129th and Lenox Avenue in Harlem.

How many more dining places will open on Frederick Douglass Blvd in Harlem, the area between 110th and 125th Street dubbed restaurant row by HarlemGal? Well, apparently one, or two or three more Harlem businesses will open in this part of Harlem.
115 Restaurant Corp has filed a liquor license for the commercial space right across from Made En Harlem, which we’ve learned from DNAinfo will be a taqueria place. 115 Restaurant Corp will be located on the southeast corner of 115th and FDB. It’s in the building where apartments are renting for around $4k a month.
The only info we can find at the moment on 115 Restaurant Corp is the name is registered to someone who lives in Harlem. That’s all we know. As soon as we know more, we will pass along the info! And if you have any insight, feel free to chime in!
And Jeff Mays from DNAinfo reported recently that The Chipped Cup and Lenox Coffee will be expanding to Harlem’s restaurant row with The Mess Hall and Bearded Lady Espresso. These Harlem businesses will open near 118th and FDB!
So the answer is yes! More places can and are opening on FDB between 110th and 125th Street. However, it’s starting to get crowded out there!
