We walked by the industrial area of Manhattanville by the Mink Building last week and noticed quite a few construction workers within one to the street level storefronts adding on drywall to the interior.  A passerby mentioned that this would be the Gavin Brown gallery in Harlem which made some headlines several months ago.  This block on 126th Street just east of Amsterdam has been slowly over the past decade changing into what might just one day be the next West Chelsea and the arrival of the famous Gavin Brown gallery could be the game changer.  For those who are not in the art world, this move by the iconic downtown establishment is basically akin to Barney's moving uptown for retail.  Mr. Brown has been a Harlem resident for several years and with downtown retail spaces now being too expensive for even the bigger names in the art world, it only makes sense to head further up north.  More on Gavin Brown's move to Harlem can be found in our past post: LINK
