“As a longtime Harlem resident, I believe the presence of mom-and-pop shops is vital to maintaining a sense of community in our neighborhood. I’ve known owners Katrina Parris and her husband, Mark Pinn, for several years—when they first opened [now-shuttered] Katrina Parris Flowers—so it’s good to see they’re still servicing our area with their current shop NiLu, which promotes artworks, decorative housewares, home fragrances, and gifts by local makers and creatives.” —Keita Turner
