NYCgo.com says Harlem is unquestionably happening

In their neighborhood highlights section, NYCgo.com, the official guide to the Big Apple, is featuring Harlem this week in “14 great things to see and do” informing online readers and subscribers that this part of Manhattan is the place to be!
NYCgo says “Harlem is unquestionably happening. Buoyed by an influx of former downtowners and embolden by a tradition of culture and creativity, Harlem is chock-a-block with new high-end shops, restaurants, music halls, lounges and even a luxury hotel.” (They are talking about the Aloft Hotel, which will open in August 2010). The site continues telling its readers that Harlem is “sleek, chic and sophisticated.” I could not agree more with the way NYCgo.com has described my beloved Harlem and all the to see and do items listed seem on target!
Check out the feature article here and let’s us know if you agree with the items the City listed for Harlem!

LeBron campaign brings out video preview of the upcoming Red Rooster in Harlem

We had no idea that there was interior video footage of Marcus Samuelsson’s Red Rooster restaurant out there in the internet universe until a reader informed us about. Thank you to DJ Jaffe for the heads up. Much appreciated!

Apparently, our celebrity chef  from Harlem made a video pitch to James LeBron, like almost every other NY celebrity has done already, to come to the Big Apple and play basketball. To entice LeBron, Samuelsson is giving LeBron, and us, a sneak peak of Red Rooster and a guaranteed table at the Lenox Ave restaurant.  Check out the video here as well on NYC.gov.

Honestly, I do not see what the big deal is about begging this athlete to come to NYC, but I assume it has to do with cha-ching/moo-la/dinero to the City.

Well, since everyone is making a pitch for James LeBron, HarlemCondoLife.com will join in, but take it a step further! Here we go:

HEY KING JAMES, TAKE ALL THOSE CELEBRITIES’ ADVICE AND COME TO THE GREATEST CITY ON THE PLANET, NEW YORK CITY, TO PLAY BASKETBALL. AND IF YOU DO MOVE TO NYC, WE THINK YOU SHOULD MOVE TO HARLEM AND BUY A BIG-O-GIANT PENTHOUSE/CONDO OR A GORGEOUS, MILLION DOLLAR TOWNHOUSE. THESE ARE ITEMS FIT FOR A KING. YA, THAT’S THE TICKET!

By moving to Harlem, we think this will definitely set you apart from the  NYC athlete pack. You could move right next to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar! What do you think? Do you like our idea? C’mon move to Harlem!  If you need more reasons why, just ask Marcus Samuelsson.

Street Tree Planting in Harlem

I was walking along 113th Street between Frederick Douglass Blvd and Adam Clayton Powell today; and I spotted City workers jackhammering away the sidewalk on the North side of the street. I asked the workers what was going on and they said they are planting a ton of trees. Ten to 11 trees they said. Hmm? Seems like a lot for that one block in my view, but we will take it. More green for Harlem!

If someone in the area requested a free street tree from the City for this part of Harlem, HCL says THANK YOU!
