Walking by the hugely popular Harlem Public at 149th and Broadway, we noticed that the matching retail storefront next door is now empty. Harlem Public tends to be a tight fit sometimes doing prime time and this could be an opportunity for the pub to expand if the next door lease is available. Otherwise, the location is definitely up and coming for Hamilton Heights and any new establishment should be able to benefit from the foot traffic already generated by Harlem Public. In the meantime, the weather is getting nicer so the planned outdoor seating should arriving soon at the West Harlem spot.
