St. Nicholas Avenue is probably one of the most intact boulevards from the south to north end but some prime lots still remain. One in particular is located at the east corner of St. Nicholas and 127th right at the express train entrance. This subway station location gets central Harlem residents to midtown in 10 minutes and is just a couple of blocks away from 125th Street and the Frederick Douglass commercial corridor. The aforementioned parcel appears to have been a building location at one time so we imagine it is city owned. Does anyone have any history on why this prime lot is undeveloped?
