Harlem often featured in this Sunday’s New York Times
This weekend’s New York Times had several pieces featuring Harlem. It just so happens these pieces are from some favorite columns in some favorite sections.
- This week’s The Hunt features the search for an apartment ending on West 116th.
- This week’s Corner Office features an interview with Steve Stoute, chief executive of Translation LLC, an ad agency, was conducted and condensed by Adam Bryant. Mr. Stoute is also chairman of Carol’s Daughter, a beauty products company, whose flagship store is on 125th street.
- The real estate section features an article on a plan to transform an East Harlem elementary school into 90 affordable apartments for artists and their families and space for community arts groups, with construction slated to begin by spring. The project is a collaboration of Artspace, an organization based in Minneapolis that builds affordable living and work space for artists, and El Barrio’s Operation Fightback, a community development organization in East Harlem. The groups expect to spend $50 million to convert the school, the former Public School 109 on East 99th Street.
- And finally, a piece about a favorite Mansion while biking to Riverside Park – the opulent Schinasi Mansion at Riverside Drive and West 107th Street, built in 1909 for Morris Schinasi, a tobacco importer and cigarette manufacturer from Turkey – a 35-room white marble structure.
