A Future for East Harlem

On April 13th, 2017 we had an event dedicated to discussing the Future of East Harlem. There were refreshments, networking, a sock giveaway and a great panel.

Silicon Harlem’s 3500 twitter follower (Jason G.) was in attendance at tonight’s “The Future of East Harlem” event and received a pair of SILICON HARLEM SOCKS!!!!!! #siliconharlem #eharlemrise
