something to think about: N in Harlem
Reading this Times piece about N, a new boutique selling high end goods in New York’s Harlem, I got to thinking about my own gentrified neighborhood here in Chicago.
Like, I can appreciate that there is an outpost of the venerable Scoop chain, never mind that they don’t carry anything larger than a 12, I think. But then there are all those salons on North and Armitage Avenues that look as though the only hair they’ve ever seen is blonde and straight, never mind ethnic.
There aren’t feelings or thoughts that I can articulate especially well now, but I hope to have something on this topic soon. Comment away, gentle readers.
