Introducing The Franconian, produced by HarlemLIVE.
Where did we get the name? Franconia, a place in Germany, is etched in stone over the doorway. It is currently hidden by scaffolding. We made it a noun by adding an ’n’. However, we’re open to a name change based on feedback. Many of the area’s pre-war buildings have names. Take a look.
