MMPCIA Sets Date for Annual Stoop Sale in the Mt Morris Park Historic District of Harlem




Get ready for a day of community connection and sustainability as the Mount Morris Park Community Improvement Association (MMPCIA) brings back its beloved Stoop Sale event on Sunday, May 19, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. This will be the third and largest, with more than 50 stoops participating. All of this is set within the beautiful catchment area known as the Mt. Morris Park Historic District from 116th to 124th Street, between Madison Ave. and Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Blvd., will offer a treasure trove of unique finds available for sale for visitors.

Neighbors in the landmark historic district look forward to decluttering their dwellings of pre-loved and occasionally, new items, of which 3% of sales will benefit MMPCIA and its work to help sustain its programming that includes youth scholarships, park and street beautification and local economic development. From 5 – 6:30 p.m. there will be a raffle prize drawing and a live classics set by DJ Russ Brown on Lenox Avenue bet. 119th and 120th Street.

“With its small businesses, restaurants, museums and sounds of music, our community is integral to the rich legacy of, not only central Harlem but, of New York City. This 3rd annual MMPCIA Stoop Sale allows us to have fun with neighbors and visitors from near and far,” said Madlyn Stokely, president MMPCIA. “Our invitation to upcycle through our historic district, in a small but impactful way, helps to lessen waste by stopping by our stoops for new-to-you, fashion finds, books, jewelry and home goods, while enabling us to continue our important work for generations to come.”
