December 21, 2018

 

• North End Food Hall–Washington Heights' very first food hall–finally has an opening date: March 2019. Vendors coming to the 6,000-square-foot space include tried-and-true uptown favorites such as Jin Ramen, Harlem Public and La Chula. One of the most "promising stalls," according to the report, is barbecue joint Salt and Bone Smokehouse. [Eater NY]

 

• Starting in January, five subway stations in Washington Heights will undergo accessibility repairs. Two of them–the 1 platform in the 168th St station and the 181st St 1 station–will be closed at different times for up to an entire year. [Curbed NY]

 

Mary Poppins Returns, starring Lin-Manuel Miranda, had its pre-release premiere at the United Palace Theater last Sunday. In attendance were several hundred children from Amber Charter Schools, co-founded by Miranda's father, Luis Miranda. “From the moment I was cast in this movie, I have waited for this day. We can watch this uptown with our people,” Miranda told the audience. “It makes my heart so full to see so many kids here, so many families. Mi gente. I love you.” [Manhattan Times]
