Friends of Morningside Park mentioned that an outdoor cafe proposal is currently under review by the Parks Department for the overlook area at West 112th Street on Manhattan Avenue.  Many of the major parks in the city have dining establishments that soak in the local view so this totally makes sense for the green space on the southern border of Central Harlem.  There will also be room for two optional food units which would help the location become a casual dining destination if all proceed accordingly.  For more on the review process and details of the proposal, check out the Friends of Morningside Park website: LINK

Exciting News!

Our Advocacy Has Been Successful Again

We are thrilled that the Parks Dept. has listened to our desire that an RFP (Request for Proposals) be reissued for a cafe at the overlook at 112th and Manhattan Ave. We think this is a great opportunity for the right concessionaire and hope the RFP will generate lots of interest from the Harlem business community. The RFP is available for download through February 22, 2019, on Parks' website. You may also download the RFP from our server

We are providing this download to facilitate dissemination of the document only.

All questions related to the RFP should be directed to the Park project manager listed on page 2 of the document. If you are going to submit a bid you should also register with Parks to be kept up-to-date on any changes or announcements related to the project by visiting clicking on the "Concessions Opportunities at Parks” link.
