Uptown links: pushing for a ferry at West Harlem Piers, a Harlem sidewalk shed makes news, and more

Updated: Nov 11, 2020

Will a ferry come to West Harlem Piers?

• Council Member Mark Levine is calling for an NYC Ferry route from West Harlem Piers on 125th Street to New Jersey. “There's a glaring omission in the growing NYC ferry network: w.125th St., where a modern $30m pier sits unused. Just 8 mins across river from NJ. Good connections up and down West Side," he wrote on Twitter earlier this week. [Metro]

• A sidewalk shed on the corner of Lenox and West 123rd that had stood there since 2004 has finally been taken down. [Curbed NY]

• Harlem's Fashion Row and Harlem Fashion Week are two organizations that are shining a spotlight on fashion in Harlem. [Ozy]

• Talk about more is more: a new-to-market Harlem penthouse has five bedrooms, six-plus bathrooms, four Miele ovens, two refrigerators, and a wine cellar with space for 1,000 bottles. [Curbed NY]

• There's a major development boom in the South Bronx, complete with coffee shops, galleries, artisanal pizza–and tons of new apartments. [NY Post]
