Has anyone seen this cat?

I am looking for my cat, Male, black and white, last seen around Rutherford and Strong in the beginning of November.

  • I see a bunch of cats in the alley at night. I'll try to get a picture.

  • The cat was going in yards on the Natchez side, 2nd or 3 rd house closer to
    5400 Street. Good luck, hope you find him soon

Cozy Corner on Harlem?

Any information out there as to what is going on with this place? Seems to be stuck in limbo.

  • A recent comment elsewhere on EveryBlock indicated that Cozy's website said it was opening in February.

2 questions

Hi Neighbors
I was wondering if anyone knows when Cozy Restuarant will open on Harlem at the location where Sally's use to be -seems like they have been working on for about a hear -you would think there would be not much of a transition ?
Second -there is a plot of land next to Marriott on Higgins that looks like there tore down entire building -are they rebuilding something there or perhaps trying to add on to Marriott? Live in the area and want to keep up with what's going on in the hood.
Thanks for any info you can provide.

  • See DNAinfo article dated 12/8/16 titled "299 Luxury Micro Apartments Proposed next to Cumberland Marriott".
