Uptown links: Harlem Week kicks off with a day-long festival, five uptown spots join NYC Restaurant

​• Harlem Week, which is actually more of a month, starts this Sunday with the day-long "A Great Day in Harlem" festival at the U.S. Grant National Memorial Park–look for dance performances, a gospel concert, and more–and runs through the end of August. Other fun events include Summer in the City on August 18th and the Upper Manhattan Auto Show on August 19th, which features a vintage auto parade. [Time Out New York]

• NYC Restaurant Week–another misnomer since it stretches from July 23 to August 17–is your chance to eat at fancy spots around town for a set price (no budget-busting surprises). The five participating uptown restaurants are The Cecil Steakhouse, Lido, Vinateria, Red Rooster Harlem, and Sofrito. [Patch]

• Yet another rave review of Clay on Manhattan Avenue: "Clay’s is a menu hard to choose from because just about everything sounds so delicious, even a bowl of roasted nuts, fried sage and buckwheat to nibble on," writes a critic. [Forbes]

• This "stylish and budget-friendly" one-bedroom in Washington Heights is going for $399K. [Curbed NY]

• More than twice that amount will get you this spacious, sunny two-bedroom condo in Hamilton Heights. [6SQFT]

• West 124th Street between Frederick Douglass and Adam Clayton Powell Jr Boulevards will look a whole lot different soon. A developer is planning two 12-story buildings, according to permits it just filed. [New York YIMBY]
