Enjoy the Apollo Theater, Sylvia's Restaurant, Lenox Lounge, Red Rooster, and Corner Social just to name a few! The neighborhood's popularity has seen exponential growth, set in motion after Harlem USA, a retail complex at 125th Street and Frederick Douglass Boulevard, opened in 2000. Soon thereafter, developers and retailers began zeroing in, with multiple large-scale residential and retail projects now in progress or nearing completion. These are too numerous to list here but include the soon-to-open Whole Foods on 125th Street and many highly buzzed-about new condominiums set to augment the multiple successful condo projects that have already begun changing Harlem's residential landscape.LegacyThis townhouse also boasts a rich history, having at one time been home to Clara McBride Hale, or Mother Hale as she was popularly known. Mother Hale was a pioneer in self-help efforts and came to symbolize the untapped potential of disadvantaged groups taking care of their own. She eventually won international recognition for her efforts, and President Ronald Reagan saluted her as an "American heroine" in his 1985 State of the Union address.
