A Bespoke tip came in and revealed that a liquor license has been requested for the shop space at 239 Lenox Avenue. We walked by the brownstone corner at West 122nd Street with the distinct gated patio already built in for outdoor seating and noticed the public hearing papers posted on the windows for Boulevard Bistro (click on lower photo to enlarge). Lower Lenox has a handful of nice boutique businesses but the multitude of brownstone shops have been underutilized. This area is within the Mount Morris Park Historic District and is actually more picturesque than the section above 125th Street but not too many better businesses have taken advantage of this fact.
