Yesterday I decided to go to 135th street in Harlem to experience the yearly event which is Harlem Week. This is a week of black culture and a time of unity. A lot of people from the community as well as tourist stopped by to take in the good food, drinks, music, dances and performances. I brought my camera and took a few flicks of the day.

On Sunday in Harlem there was a fashion show that was held at the Harlem Summerstage at the State Building on 125th and 7th Ave. I believe it was being hosted by the National Action Network which is ran by Al Sharpton and his daughters. I went out there to see my Harlem family and see what was going down. I didnt take much exciting photos but here are some of the good ones.

One of the top 5 Nike sneakers, the Nike Foamposite Pros, are definitely good for selling out fast in Nike Accounts. These Pearl colorways are not going to be any different. The sneaker features a Pearl color siding, with black accents and translucent bottom just like the “Eggplants“. Always a good look. These are set to come out May 23rd exclusively at House Of Hoops in Harlem. (Sorry Rest Of WORLD, lol. Looks like Dame Dash was right) [VIA]

Today was the release of Nate Robinson’s “KryptoNate” sneakers. These were the sneakers which he wore in the slam-dunk contest. I tried to wait out there for the past two days to see if I can get a spot so I can buy and flip them but I was out of luck. So I decided to go out and take photos. Check out the pics below

January 20th, 2009 was the Inauguration of Barack Obama, our 44th President of The United States Of America. Although i wasn’t able to go to Washington, DC this year, I was able to go to the State Office Building on 125th in Harlem. The day was cold but nobody cared because it was going to be a historical day. Check out some of the pictures that I took of this day.
