INTRODUCING: SHAKE SHACK OPENS ON 125TH STREET



Harlem Bespoke: Locals were lining up just before 11:00AM today to be the first ones to check out the menu at the new Shake Shack on 125th Street by Fifth Avenue.  An uptown location by 116th Street in Morningside Heights had opened last year which was the furthest uptown Shake Shack had ventured until now.  For the Central Harlem debut, a gospel choir sang in the background as diners streamed in to try out one of the most famous burgers in New York which was started up by fine dining restauranteur Danny Meyers who actually dropped by for the festivities.  More photos after the jump.

DWELL: 7 WEST 122ND STREET OFF MARKET

Harlem Bespoke:  Number 7 west 122nd Street arrived on the market this past September with the asking set at $4.25 million but eventually was removed from the market in October without any price reductions.  As previously mentioned, the location in the Mount Morris Park Historic District is very desirable and there are a lot of original details within but the brownstone is technically a 4-family home.  With that said, the express trains on Lenox and also the new Whole Foods are only 3 blocks away which all have helped set record sales in the neighborhood.  More details and photos on Streeteasy: LINK

ARCHITECTURE: BROTHERHOOD SISTER SOL BUILDING


Harlem Bespoke: We walked by the Brotherhood Sister Sol townhouse at 512 West 143rd Street and noticed it was set for demolition.  The online site of the community organization actually announced that this year was the official groundbreaking for the new facility which will be the modern one shown in the above rendering.  This state of art architectural update will entail 20,000 square-foot of space solely to help local children 8-22 years of age to receive mentorship, training and advance to college.  Some additional fund-raising is needed for the new facility located just west of Amsterdam and those who are interested in learning more or to help out the uptown children's organization should go to the official website: LINK
