Parsons School of Design alumnus with a BFA in fashion, who has worked in the menswear industry for several years. Past lives have been in the East Village and Lower East Side of Manhattan; more recently transplanted to Harlem. Currently living in a 1907 "French flat," an Edwardian era middle-class apartment.
When following up on the Harlem School of the Arts building restoration, we walked a block up north to see if anything was going with lot at 651 St. Nicholas Avenue. A reader mentioned that there was a For Sale sign at some point over in the summer (middle photo) but walking by this time around, we noticed that the sign was taken down. This is the wide parcel before the old gas station building at this section of St. Nicholas Avenue and roughly 143rd Street. Does anyone know what's going on with this property? It seem like a lot of vacant space to be sitting around that could be put to good use.
