Over at Harlem Fur, there's a poll going on: "A Harlem Fur reader, property manager, and Harlemite himself writes in to let us know that he has vacant storefront space around Lenox and 125th, and is wondering what people would like to see fill it up. So feel free to voice your opinion via the survey, in the comments, or via email, as this is not about being rigorously scientific. No, picking great Harlem retail is all about love." Love or money, but mostly, love. At press time, Chipotle was winning by a landslide.
