Walking past the long empty commercial space just south of 116th Street on FDB, we noticed that a sign for Blujeen had been placed up at the newish condo construction.  Our first thought here was that a retail shop was arriving based on the name but permits posted on the windows reveal otherwise.   Apparently this new spot in the South Harlem corridor will be an eating and drinking establishment.  The challenge here will be to add character to the space so it does not look like a hotel lobby from a decade ago.  With that said,  Harlem Shambles did a pretty good job in this department so lets hope Blujeen can put a bit more charm back into this section of lower 8th Avenue.

  1. Interesting. A boutique focused on designer jeans would have been a great addition
