Update: What’s New in Harlem?
So I swung by the location of the new wine store which is The Lenox Grand at 381 Lenox. Since it was morning the store wasn’t open, but they are fully stocked and ready for business. There is no signage yet, other than the grand opening sign, but I was shocked to see that area of Lenox coming together. The wine store is located right across from the Dancy Auto Dealer.
Next door to the wine store, a restaurant was prepping to open (no sign advertising the name either) and next to the restaurant is Uptown Gems, the pre-K program run by Harlem Children’s Zone.
On Sunday I noticed quite a bit of activity in Doug E.’s on Seventh Avenue. I suspect if all is in order they should be open before the end of the year. Also along 7th, I saw that they are opening another Harlem location for KUMON.
I also checked out Mojo, located on the corner of St. Nicholas and 119th Street a couple of doors down from Billie’s Black. The exterior of the business is dressed in an eyecatching purple. From the outside it looks intriguing. I will definely have to see what they have to offer once they open.
