☞ INTRODUCING: Muddy Waters Cafe
Uhm, the name might be a little off for a coffee joint that does not have live jazz but having a new cafe in Harlem is always welcomed. The original Muddy Waters (shown in the above shot) was actually in Prospect Heights Brooklyn and now the owner has moved to Harlem to take advantage of the bargain rents and the current revival of the neighborhood. As Brooklyn becomes more expensive, this course of action for business owners might start to trend in an ever unsure economy. The cafe will open next week on 2185 Adam Clayton Powell in one of the less attractive new buildings so it's yet to be seen if the the cafe will be as cozy as the original. On the plus side, it will have an amazing view of the historic church across the street on 129th. LINK to AMNY article. Photo by Alexandra H.
