Kicking off spring/summer 2013, the League, in conjunction with Harlem Haberdashery, the Mount Morris Park Community Improvement Association and Azekiwe Province & Warrior Sports, will host “Greener Lenox” beginning on May 4 from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Their goal is to help the growth and development of local trees and build median flower planter-boxes. Volunteers will weed, remove trash and plant flowers and bulbs in tree beds. They will also create signs and build protective tree guards.

Harlem Haberdashery–now nearly a year old–specializes in stocking limited collections of accessories, men’s clothing and women’s wear. For women, there are lovely cocktail dresses, evening gowns and spring suits. They are located in Central Harlem, close to the Red Rooster. From now through May 9, the shop will also feature elegant prom dresses. It is a smart-looking boutique.
