SEE: MACBETH BY THE CLASSICAL THEATRE OF HARLEM

This is the last week that the free presentation of Macbeth by The Classical Theatre of Harlem will be performing at Marcus Garvey Park and the production is one of the best that we have seen as far as theater goes.  Intricate sets, mystical special effects and action packed performances really make this version of the Shakespearean story worth the visit to the Richard Rodgers Amphitheater.  Check out the last shows which will run nightly from Tuesday at 8:00PM until this Sunday July 31st.  We also recommend to arrive early to get seats closer up to the front of the stage since the visuals are quite astounding this time around.  More on the Classical Theatre of Harlem can be found in our past post: LINK

DWELL: 914 SAINT NICHOLAS REDUCED

The SRO townhouse at 914 St. Nicholas Avenue by 156th Street went up on the market this past May for $1.7 million but the asking has been reduced a couple times and is now at $1.599 million.  This 17-foot-wide home on Sugar Hill is a block away from the train station but the immediate area is pretty residential with not much going on.  A Certificate of Non Harassment is in place which will make for an easier renovation process but the interior is in pretty rough shape.  More details and photo on Streeteasy: LINK
