Uptown links: Citi Bike finally reaches Inwood, and more


Citi Bike finally reaches Inwood

• Citi Bike just planted 36 new stations in Washington Heights and Inwood, finally reaching the tippy top of Manhattan (220th Street, to be precise). [Citi Bike NYC]


• A shiny new glass tower called One45 is being proposed for the corner of W 145th Street and Lenox Avenue. The nearly one-million-square-foot mixed use development would include the headquarters of Al Sharpton's National Action Network and his Museum of Civil Rights. [Urbanize New York]


• Demolition permits have been filed for Grace Congregational Church at 310 W 139th Street. Built in 1892 and located in the middle of the proposed Dorrance Brooks Square Historic District, the small brick church may be replaced by an apartment building with room for the congregation. [Patch]


• An East Harlem neighborhood group has started the process to rename the block where legendary actress Cicely Tyson grew up. The members want E 101st Street between Lexington and Third Avenues to be renamed "Cicely Tyson Way." [Patch]


• Looking for a place to eat after getting vaccinated at Yankee Stadium? New York has some suggestions: 188 Cuchifritos in the Bronx or Benyam and Native Noodles across the river. [Grub Street]
