New gates, new sidewalks and a cleanup crew at the corner lot located on the west side of 117th Street and FDB/8th Avenue has many wondering on what is actually going at this corner of South Harlem. A tip came in this weekend informed us of gentlemen handing out "flyer announcing that the flea market would be coming soon. no date is set, but they are calling it "The Harlem Treasure Chest." Walking by the lot on Sunday, we did not notice any signs but the parcel of land definitely has been cleaned up with gravel having been laid out over what used to be overgrown weeds, foliage and detritus.
