That's my name! Left: The Douglass Condo (114th), Right: The Douglas rental (117th)
Gentrify me! Left: Frizzante and The Winery (117th) and Starbucks at SoHa 118 (118th)
Left: Vacant lot at 117th, Is that beam a 421-a marker? Right, FD Mosaic in Cathedral Pkwy station
Have I beat the Frederick Douglass horse to death yet? Maybe, but I've got the shots so I am going to go with them.
While most NYC development has ground to a halt, I was impressed by how much is continuing to happen on FDB south of 119th. It really has gentrified. Starbucks, Rite Aid, a wine bar? As much as it has cleaned up, if you look at the wrong block you would struggle to realize that you are in New York. For that, I am a bit sad, but, I guess it beats vacant lots.
