Legendary Harlem Congressman Charles Rangel is nearing the end of his political career.

Bronx Democratic Party leaders said Monday they are deserting Rangel, the 83-year-old dean of New York’s delegation in Washington, for Adriano Espaillat in the June 24 Democratic congressional primary.

And city Controller Scott Stringer is also expected to soon endorse Espaillat, several sources told the Daily News. He was celebrating Passover Tuesday and couldn’t be reached for comment.

Stringer will thus join Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito as the second citywide politician to line up against Rangel, the Korean War hero who has held his congressional seat for an astounding 44 years.

Harlem’s bustling Restaurant Row will have a fleet of new four-wheeled competitors beginning next month.

A week after a successful dry run, food trucks and vendors — including some from the community — will be a recurring fixture each Saturday on Frederick Douglass Blvd. when Harlem Eats returns May 10, organizers told The News.

“It’s going to be an eclectic mix of food trucks and gourmet street food vendors,” said Jessica Chornesky, founder of Harlem Eats, which originally launched under the name Harlem Food Truck Rally on April 5.

The first-ever Harlem Food Truck Rally, which drew popular cheeseteak purveyor Shorty’s and sliders from Mr. Nice Guy, descended on a vacant Frederick Douglass Blvd. lot — also known as Restaurant Row — between W. 117th and 118th Sts.

Spread Love: Last Day To Support Uptown’s Own Emmanuel “Dj Boy” Abreu

BY Led Black (@Led_Black)

First of all, congrats to our very own Emmanuel “Dj Boy” Abreu for reaching his Indiegogo pledge goal. That is a terrific accomplishment from one of the most humble and hardest working people I know. With that said, you still have a few hours to contribute to the campaign. So if you haven’t hit the Contribute Now button yet, please do so right now. So here is the deal. Dj Boy was chosen to take part in the prestigious 360 Xochi Quetzal artist residency. In fact, Dj Boy was the only photographer chosen out of a total of 160 applicants. Dj Boy will spend the month of May traversing Mexico capturing it’s magic in much the same way he has done for Uptown in the last 4 years. While the residency provides room and board, airfare is not included. The funds will also go a long way in helping him properly gear up for the life-defining trip. My good friend Dj Boy has given of himself freely for this community, let’s return the favor and show that man some love.

Please spread some Uptown Love and support via the link below.
