Mann Realty involvement with Harlem’s Beatification Project

Mr. Mann was instrumental with working with the City of New York and other landlords in the Harlem Community in creating “The Gateway to Harlem”. The GWH mission was to upgrade the public corridors of Harlem inclusive of new sidewalks, street lamps, park benches, landscaping as well as numerous other upgrades which helped to spark Harlem’s Renaissance.
