Making a Case for Frederick Douglass Blvd. as Harlem's Gold Coast

New, 17 comments

Blog Harlem Condo Life uses the occasion of the opening of The Douglass (formerly called The Savannah, right) to anoint Frederick Douglass Boulevard as Harlem's Gold Coast. (And really, every neighborhood needs a Gold Coast, right?) In addition to the Douglass at #2110, there's 2280 FDB, Livmor, the Aloft and plenty of other new stuff sprouting. HarlemGuy writes:
