He’s moving on up, but not out of Harlem’s Sugar Hill.
Longtime Harlemite Walter McClary badly needed a new place to live.
The 80-year-old Korean War vet often struggled to climb two flights of stairs to his apartment in a five-story tenement on 155th St. near Amsterdam Ave.
His knees ache from arthritis, and his grandchildren were scared sick after he fell while walking upstairs last year.
“I’m a soldier,” McClary said. “I can put up with it if I have to.”
Luckily the tough-talking war hero won’t have to.
McClary snagged a studio at the newly opened Sugar Hill Apartments just one short block to the east on St. Nicholas Ave.
