A Little About This Space

Set up shop around the corner from one the iconic Martin Luther King Boulevard and one of the most famous Soul food restaurants in the city and well-known stores and bars including American Eagle, Red Rooster and Whole Foods. This Harlem shop space (formerly home to Verizon) is available to rent for retail, events or showroom use.

THE CROWD

This neighborhood may celebrate its African American roots like nowhere else, but its growing music, culinary, and nightlife scene is steadily attracting visitors from all over. Quirky folk and trendy students from all over the city descend upon its iconic streets to visit the many galleries and monumental jazz clubs that Harlem has to offer. The weekends are busiest with people heading to places like the popular Chuck E. Cheese’s or St Nicholas Deli, which is open 24 hours a day.

MEET THE NEIGHBORS

This space sits in the centre of town and is one block away from Sylvia’s, a Harlem institution that’s been serving up Soul food since 1962 and frequently has queues out of the door. There is a metro stop right outside on 125th street.
