Our last Harlem gem for the afternoon is a rare Curbed commercial listing. What draws us to it? Some 'Hoodwinked magic in the listing prose: "Incredible opportunity in the burgeoning Viaduct Valley (ViVa) area of Harlem. Retail, Restaurant and Office space available in 2-level historic 1926 freight house restored into a loft-style building."
ViVa! Good God, it's genius. With clever euphemism like this—given that, let's face it, this building is tucked up against a goddamn expressway—we predict a very bright future for West Harlem. Viva ViVa! Olé!
· Listing: 701 West 135th Street (commercial) [Warburg]
