READ: THE CENTRAL HARLEM HISTORIC DISTRICT

Harlem Bespoke:  Central Harlem north of 125th Street will finally be getting a historic district.  The Landmarks Preservations Commission has finally put the matter on calendar and the blocks between Lenox and 7th Avenue from 130th to 132nd Street will most likely be designated by May 29th next month.  An initial meeting earlier in April had positive reactions from the community and the commission so everything should come about accordingly.  More details on Curbed NY: LINK

SHOP: ANOTHER BREWERY IN CENTRAL HARLEM
