Uptown's very own “Grand Central” is on the way. A sketchy poorly lit intersection of East 125th St. and park Ave. below the Metro-North Railroad viaduct appeared to have been forgotten in the midst of Harlem's renaissance, but now it's slated to get a serious makeover.
Harlem has emerged as one of the city’s hottest dining scenes in recent years. Now, a new crop of restaurants is upping the game again. The center of activity is Frederick Douglass Blvd. — Eighth Ave. — known as Harlem’s Restaurant Row.
