EAT: BLUE CRAB MONDAYS AT LOUI LOUI


Harlem Bespoke:  We noticed that a crowd had been stopping by early in the evening at Loui Loui on Broadway just two blocks south of 125th Street and decided to check out what the daily offerings were about.  It turned out each day of the week has a specialty du jour that is priced just right and Monday was apparently blue crab night.

RENT: A BROWNSTONE STUDIO ON HAMILTON PLACE

Harlem Bespoke:  Studio prices apparently are going up quite a bit over the past year but the one located at 50 Hamilton Place going for $1,950 a month at least has shared outdoor space and is a no-fee listing. There is a lot of old world charm and laundry rooms are also included within the brownstone building.  Other than that, the 1 train is just a couple of blocks away and there are a lot of new places to check out either on the Broadway corridor or on Sugar Hill.  More photos and details can be found on the Broker site: LINK

EXERCISE: HARLEM CYCLE ON ACP

Harlem cycle debuted within the Strivers Row neighborhood on Adam Clayton Powell by 138th Street on the lower level of historic brownstone back in 2016. This cardio destination is not a big flashy gym so uptown fitness enthusiasts will receive more one-on-one attention and do not have to go all the way downtown for something similar.  Drop by for details or support this local small business by booking classes online: LINK

REMEMBER: KING IN NEW YORK AT MCNY


King in New York at the Museum of the City of New York,  Fifth Avenue by 104th Street.  Commemorating the 50th anniversary of the death of Martin Luther King Jr., King in New York traces the civil rights leader’s encounters with New York from the 1950s until his assassination in 1968. The exhibition’s historic images chronicle King’s sermons in churches and speeches to the United Nations, his discussions about race relations with New York City’s mayor, and his relationships with New York’s own networks of activists.  More details can be found at the MCNY site: LINK
