Parks will be holding a second recommended proposer meeting and site tour on Thursday, February 21, 2019 at 2 PM at Morningside Park at 112th Street and Manhattan Avenue." Proposals are now due Friday, March 8, 2019 at 3:00PM. All questions related to the RFP should be directed to the Parks Dept. Project Manager listed in the RFP document.

Exciting News!

Our Advocacy Has Been Successful Again

We are thrilled that the Parks Dept. has listened to our desire that an RFP (Request for Proposals) be reissued for a cafe at the overlook at 112th and Manhattan Ave. We think this is a great opportunity for the right concessionaire and hope the RFP will generate lots of interest from the Harlem business community. The RFP and Feb 12, 2109 Addendum are available for download on Parks' website. You may also download the Addendum and RFP from our server.

We are providing this download to facilitate dissemination of the document ONLY.

Again, all questions related to the RFP should be directed to the Park project manager listed on page 2 of the document. If you are going to submit a bid you should also register with Parks to be kept up-to-date on any changes or announcements related to the project by visiting and clicking on the "Concessions Opportunities at Parks” link.

Thanks For Your Support!

Our Fundraiser Was A Huge Success

We had a wonderful event at the Columbia University Faculty House overlooking the park. Thank you to all who came out and who sent in their support even if they couldn't attend. Here are some pictures.
