Mart 125 will soon experience a rebirth.
The 67,000-square-foot eyesore on 125th St. near Frederick Douglass Blvd., which has been vacant for more than a decade, will soon house three journalism and documentary filmmaking media-related organizations, a Harlem visitors center run by NYC & Co. and ground floor retail that could include a restaurant, according to officials at the Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone.
