For the last several years, all Harlem has seen is condo buildings going up-one after the other-especially on or near Frederick Douglass Blvd. Another building is going to be constructed in this Harlem area. However, it’s not going to be a condo. Several sources tell Harlem Gal Inc that the next building to be built from the ground up in Central Harlem will be a rental building and the developer responsible for this will be Hans Futterman. Futterman has built 2280 FDB and several other buildings in the surrounding area in Harlem.
Futterman purchased the space on St. Nicholas Avenue between 121st and 122nd Street. It’s where the gas station use to be. If you walk by you will see that it’s been closed and permits are hanging on the fence. Futterman has told several business people in Harlem that he is going to build a rental building at this location in Harlem since most of what he has built has been condos!
There is no word yet as to what the building will look like in terms of layout or how high. As with most stories, that information will unfold over time.
As for whether this building will be an affordable rental building, I seriously doubt it. Most of what Futterman builds is mid-to-high end. Stay tuned!

There is October-fest for adults and now there is an OctoBear-fest for children in Harlem. What is OctoBear-fest in Harlem? It is a one hour workshop on how to make your own stuffed bear. On October 21 from 4-5 p.m., children will stuff, wish on a rainbow star during the rainbow star ceremony, snap and zip, and complete a birth certificate for their very own stuffed animal. Children will also be receiving Trick or Treat bags just in time for Halloween. OctoBear-fest will be conducted by a Harlemite, who is party leader from Noah’s Ark Animal Workshop. The cost to attend this event is $20.00 per child and includes the bear, drink and treat. Tickets may be available at the event at higher cost, while supplies last.
If you are interested in attending, below are the details!

Save the date of October 8th! That is when the annual Harlem Harvest Festival takes place on the corner of 116th Street and St. Nicholas Ave! I went last year and had a wonderful time visiting all the street vendors, eating and watching the performances from the Dance Theater of Harlem. It is a great way to kick off the Fall season.
Take a look at photos from last year’s Harlem Harvest Festival!

Have no clue how to celebrate Oktoberfest in Harlem? Look to Harlem Park to Park to assist. They offer plenty of options starting tomorrow (October 1)! Harlem Park to Park Initiative is a merchants association formed in 2009 to encourage and sustain commerce throughout the upper part of Manhattan, known as Harlem.
From October 1 to October 31 it is Restaurant and Retail Month where participating restaurants will offer three course prix fixe menus. Local shops that are participating in Oktoberfest in Harlem will offer select retail items for $20.10. Harlem Park to Park is co-hosting the Harlem Harvest Festival October 9 at St. Nicholas Avenue and 116th Street. And on October 28th end the fest with a Harlem Restaurant and Bar Crawl along 8th Avenue, i.e. Frederick Douglass Blvd.
So there are plenty of options to celebrate Oktoberfest in Harlem. I definitely plan to partake in one or more of these events. Hope to see you around!
