A 12 acre area in the borough of Manhattan bounded by Lenox Avenue, North Harlem was located approximately four blocks from the larger Harlem redevelopment project. The Committee recommended that no action be taken regarding the contents of the report until a suitable private developer could be identified. This report is the sixth in a series of eight.
