☞ QUESTION: Will Upper Convent Ave Develop?
Our only take on the blocks above 145th Street is that it appears that more new businesses are starting to open in this region because the blocks further south have much higher rents now. There is not a lot of buzz like South Harlem or Lenox so businesses tend to be open by folks who live in the immediate area. The Sugar Hill corridor on St. Nicholas Avenue just one block over has great potential but not much has happened in the area except Mamma K's Soups and a wine shop. There is a grocery store right there also and the express train gets one to 14th Street in 15 minutes. So basically our opinion would be that the neighborhood is nice enough but those who are patient will probably be the best candidates to invest in this area.
