    125th Street in Harlem

    Harlem’s rapid development and emergence as a viable tourist and business destination has led to a spike in the demand for hotels in the area, so much so that the neighborhood is now short about 1,500 hotel rooms, experts said at a hospitality conference Wednesday.

    Even future growth in the hotel industry won’t be able to meet demand, Curtis Archer, president of the Harlem Community Development Corporation, said at the second-annual Harlem Hospitality and Culinary Conference held this week. Though two hotels are in the works – a 210-room property near the old Victoria Theater on 125th Street and a 230-room property near Columbia University’s West Harlem expansion – the lodging industry is still “sorely lagging,” Archer added.

    Columbia Boathouse Marsh is a new waterfront public park in Inwood that is ready for kids, runners and even the sit-downers. Now, all it needs is the city’s OK.

    Built by Columbia University, the public park at West 218th Street and Indian Road still needs a certificate of completion from the Parks Department – and will stay fenced off until it gets the piece of paper. Nothing is missing — benches, rails, plants and lights are all set up, a Columbia spokesperson said. [more]
