The Incredible Candy ShopBy Jose B. Rivera
Tucked away near the corner of 110th Street and Third Avenue like a fantastic new secret too incredible to believe is the Coco Le Vu Candy Shop and Party Room. The exact location is 202 East 110 Street. Few if any business establishment in East Harlem will impress your mind, eyes and sweet tooth like Coco Le Vu.
Walking into the store is like walking into one of those colorized dreams we all rarely have. You’d think you were at the Willie Wanka movie set. Upon walking in you are greeted with a great looking well decorated store. There are green, teal, orange and black stripped walls, in front of which are beautiful white cabinets filled with candies.Read Story
