A reader sent in a photo of 293 Lenox Avenue which formerly housed a beauty salon but will now be the new home of Metro PCS. The ubiquitous cell phone provider will now be making its presence in Central Harlem, just north of 129th Street and is another more commercial element arriving recently. A Little Caesars Pizza is also opening on Lenox just a couple of blocks south so there seems to be a mixing of better establishments and mass commercial retailers (that are usually seen on 125th Street) making its way to this part of Harlem.
