☞ LISTEN: Activity at the Cecil Hotel and Minton's
Citigroup chair's plans to enlarge the space into a 10,000-square-foot supper club and entertainment complex appears to be coming true.
Walking by the old Cecil Hotel at the corner of 118th and St. Nicholas Avenue, we noticed a dumpster out front and the corner space being gutted last week. Permits have been filed for a new drinking and eating establishment and work seems to have begun on expanding Minton's which is just the next adjacent storefront in the complex. The Harlem Community Development Corporation has a public notice up that confirms the lease transfer to the prominent said executive so all appears to be moving forward with the new Minton's: LINK.
