With some of these smaller shops setting up new businesses, it's hard to tell if something interesting will showing up as was the case of 2220 FDB/8th Avenue and 120th Street: LINK. The question mark paper on the window was up for at least a year and it looked like a dead end retail opportunity until activity picked up in the last couple of months.
It now appears that a boutique salon is arriving on this corner of South Harlem. Walking by recently, a sign announcing the arrival of Bibi could be seen out front of the formerly questionable storefront. It actually makes a whole lot of sense since there aren't any contemporary hair salons for this part of town and the service is a definite must have. A website is currently up already for those interested: www.BibiSalonNYC.com
