East 125th Street has been a work-in-progress. Checking on the progress of the new Bjarke Ingels luxury rental building, and Demolition Depot’s new building, both on 126th Street, we welcomed the chance to meet with a long-time Harlem business, OmoSade Skin Care.
We have followed her from her shop some years ago on Adam Clayton Powell Blvd, with its huge windows displaying giant sponges, to a space just east of Fifth Avenue on 125th Street, and now in her permanent home located at 2084 Lexington Avenue between 125/126th Streets, just north of IHOP, and around the corner from Bjarke Ingels ‘Gotham East’ and Demolition Depot.
This small shop packs a big punch of color, and if I would have been alone, I would have dug into the luscious samples.
OmoSade, a Certified Woman Owned Business, is a long-time merchant member of Uptown Grand Central.
