Group Tries To Save Harlem Landmark

MANHATTAN (CN) - The Save Harlem Association sued Kimco Realty Corp. to save from destruction a two-story brick Italian style building at Harlem's "Main Street Hub," at 125th Street and Frederick Douglass Boulevard. The Association and its member businesses say Kimco has used "threats, coercion, bait and switch tactics, exaction of unconscionable lease clauses, and issuance of improper legal documents" in its quest "to rip out the heart and soul of Harlem, while replacing it with a generic shopping mall having no connection whatsoever to the history and cultural development of Harlem's Main Street Hub or the Harlem community as a whole." See complaint in New York County Court.
