In 2010, Harlem's Frederick Douglass Boulevard got a boutique hotel, a beer garden, a supermarket, a luxury condo surge and, most importantly, a Curbed Cup championship! The south/central Harlem microhood, referred to by some as Harlem's new "Gold Coast," easily defeated defending champion Williamsburg (Northside, specifically) in the tournament finals, claiming 56.6% of the 2,362 total votes. Will this stunning victory go to Harlem's head? Only time will tell, but for now, this gentle golf clap goes out to all of us.
