☞ REVIVE: 651 St. Nicholas Avenue

When following up on the Harlem School of the Arts building restoration, we walked a block up north to see if anything was going with lot at 651 St. Nicholas Avenue.  A reader mentioned that there was a For Sale sign at some point over in the summer (middle photo) but walking by this time around, we noticed that the sign was taken down.  This is the wide parcel before the old gas station building at this section of St. Nicholas Avenue and roughly 143rd Street.  Does anyone know what's going on with this property?  It seem like a lot of vacant space to be sitting around that could be put to good use.


  1. Could put up a new school and listen to people bitch about their free parking places being taken away.

  2. Sanou's Mum: ...this is actually even better...I think this facility is were City College faculty park their vehicles...they definitely would not like to loose their spots for a school ;0

  3. Why does anyone bother to pay to park here? The police in the neighborhood allow anyone who wants to park in and ruin the bike lane...
