DWELL: 389 CONVENT AVENUE REDUCED AGAIN

Harlem Bespoke:  The lowest priced Harlem townhouse currently available has been reduced multiple times since last fall.  Number 389 Convent Avenue arrived on the market for the asking price of $1.39 million back in September, then the fixer-upper had been reduced to $1.25 million in December and by the end of January went down slightly to $1.2 million. Now that June is here without a confirmed buyer, it appears that the historic home just had one more price cut to $1.18 million. Apparently this address just north of 146th Street is not an SRO and has been used a single-family home in the past but now is basically a shell.  The listing mentions that the interior can not be viewed because of poor conditions so this might be one of the risks involved for potential buyers.  Other than that, the express train entrance at 147th Street and St. Nicholas Avenue is only a couple of blocks away, so the location is ideal for commuters.  More details and contact information can be found on the broker site: LINK

SHOP: CONSTRUCTION AT 2620 FREDERICK DOUGLASS

Harlem Bespoke:  A former bodega space at 2620 Frederick Douglass Boulevard on the corner of 140th Street has had some construction going on site recently and some might wonder what will be arriving soon.   This location just north of Striver Row and next door to Londel's already has tin ceiling installed within and a recent tip sent in mentioned that a coffee shop will open in the next few months.  A celebrity chef restaurant will also be debuting just a block south by the newish art gallery so the commercial business around the historic neighborhood appears to be booming these days.  More in our past post: LINK

READ: CBD EDIBLES BANNED IN JULY


Harlem Bespoke:  CBD edibles and infused foods has been the big trend in the past couple of years but now the city will start a ban the marijuana derivative from edibles starting in July.  Local businesses like Come Back Daily on Fifth Avenue by 119th Street will now mainly focus on CBD health products such as lotions, balms and cosmetics which are still legal for sale.  That CBD coffee that some cafes have been serving will probably no longer be on the menu so fans of the chill brew should probably get a fix by the end of the week while they still can.  More on the story can be found in the New York Post: LINK
