DWELL: 357 WEST 122ND STREET BROWNSTONE

Harlem Bespoke:  The townhouse with the front door cast iron dragons at 357 West 122nd Street was on the market for $3.3 million back in January and has recently had a price reduction to $2.75 million with a new broker.  We always admired this intact block around the corner from Morningside Park which has great architecture and is also close to the lower FDB by commercial corridor by the express train station on 125th Street.  There are also some original details within and the house has many modern upgrades.  With that said, the brownstones at this part of Harlem tend to be a little more on the modest in size and this townhouse is in a two-family layout.  More details and photos can be found on the broker site: LINK

READ: LIDL SET TO ARRIVE IN HARLEM

Harlem Bespoke: The European equivalent of Trader Joe's (which is actually German owned but started up originally in California) is making a move to expand in Greater New York City and this should include a location on FDB. A recent industry article reports that discount German supermarket Lidl has purchased all of Best Market's 27 locations which are mainly on Long Island but also includes a couple in the city.  This basically means the one on FDB by 118th Street and a conversion to Lidl should happen within the next two years or so.  Prices are apparently over half that of most local grocery stores and the arrival should attract other sharply discounted supermarkets who are known competitors to Lidl: LINK

SHOP: NEW FACADE FOLIAGE AT SETTEPANI


Harlem Bespoke: Everyone has been wondering about what has been happening with Settepani at the corner of 120th Street on Lenox and it now appears that some major progress is happening on the exterior.  Green decorative foliage has suddenly become and addition to the local family-owned eatery which definitely portends an opening happening very soon.  Settepani has been around for almost 2 decades and was one of the first finer dining businesses to open uptown but had been closed since the beginning of the year.  We hear that some dramatic changes have happened within and the new look of eatery will make it a destination spot for years to come.  Check out our past post for more on Settepani: LINK
