Introducing 272 MA in Harlem, no fee rental apartments

More apartments to rent are coming up in Harlem! The next batch is on the corner of 112th Street and Manhattan Avenue! The building is calling itself 272 MA. And it’s represented by Nest Seekers International.

According to the signage, the building will be offering one and two bedroom apartments with no fee. Hmm? But you have to make a certain amount of income to go into the building, according to the website. And the income is on the high side if you ask me!

Interested applicants have to fill out this form. Here’s the website to learn more.

One Morningside Park, the luxury condo going up on 110th Street and Manhattan Avenue, is more than half sold! The New York Times reports today that more than 60 percent of the 54 units have sold and prices continue to rise!

“The remaining one-bedroom is listed at $925,000. Two-bedrooms range from $1.436 million, for a 1,051-square-foot space, to $1.949 million for a 1,397-square-foot space. And three-bedrooms range from $1.911 million, for 1,265 square feet, to $2.302 million for 1,383 square feet.”

The article even states people are moving to Harlem because folks are priced out in other parts of the City. Insane!

Manhattan is out of control expensive with no end insight. Mayor-elect De Blasio your up!

Potluck picnic at Morningside Park to address Manhattan Avenue corner real estate plans

Jun 10, 2011 @ 11:10

By HarlemGal
The Friends of Morningside Park will hold a potluck picnic this coming Tuesday, June 14th from 6-8 p.m. At the event, participants can ask questions about the park and the construction that is happening on the northeast corner of Manhattan Avenue and 110th Street. The developer of the property is going to be at this potluck picnic.

If you walk by that section of Harlem, it is obvious that another apartment building is going up-scooped up by a developer. I touched upon this subject back in 2009.

So if your interested in learning more about Morningside Park and upcoming real estate activity, stop by this event on June 14th. Here’s the flyer with all the info!

When I lived in Austin I enjoyed watching all of the various versions of Law & Order. Today, walking around in my new adopted city and neighborhood, Harlem, I came across the film crew of Law & Order. They are filming the Emmy Award winning television series in Central Harlem today August 27th and tomorrow August 28th! The crew is on 116th Street between Frederick Douglass Blvd. and Manhattan Avenue!

Harlem Condo Alert: The Alycia Completely Sold?

Jan 27, 2009 @ 0:30



By HarlemGal,
I walk down 114th Street between Frederick Douglass and Manhattan Avenue all the time heading to Morningside Heights Park. When you take this walk, you see construction every where in this area. Just the other day I noticed the netting/scaffolding all over one particular lot was now down and the new structure donned a big banner with the words The Alycia. I checked out their website and according to The Alycia, this place will be condos with all the trimmings of a new home.  The site also claims all units are SOLD, which is quite impressive given current market conditions. Maybe that explains when I walked by the other day, the big banner existed no more.



We’re not surprised folks purchased condos in this area and plan to move to Central Harlem. After all, HarlemCondoLife lives and blogs in Harlem. My only lingering question is when were these units sold – a year or six months ago?  We called the real estate company representing this building for further details.  No word yet. However, if you know something before or if they get back to us, please chime in.
