I am a 75-year-old retired schoolteacher who owns and operates a children's toy and book store next door.
I was born and raised in Harlem. As a child I had always wanted to own a home here. When the opportunity arose I took advantage of it.
The high ceilings, the quiet backyard, the space, the friendly neighborhood, the park at the end of the street with a swimming pool, ten minute subway trip to Time Square or Yankee stadium, the outdoor cafés on the corners, the laundromat down the street, the quality supermarkets and wonderful shopping five blocks away.
