Harlem has a long line of beer brewers, from Pabst Harlem restaurant to Yuengling Brewery, which was housed in a historical German-American style building, Mink Building.
Prohibition nearly killed it, but time could destroy it. That’s the situation for the last remaining brewing complex in Manhattan. The former D.G. Yuengling Brewery Co. complex in Harlem is under consideration for landmark designation and a public hearing was held last Thursday.
One of the last large, vacant lots in central Harlem is about to become an apartment building. The property’s longtime owners, the Fane family, have filed plans to erect a 10-story residential development on the plot at 305 West 128th Street, between Frederick Douglass Boulevard and St. Nicholas Avenue.
