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.
Seeing that the ConEd building on West 125th Street is currently under demolition for the New Harlem Success Academy, one might wonder where are folks paying their bills? Walking by the old Oswald Supply Company warehouse at 116-120 East 124th Street, we noticed that that the formerly abandoned building received a scrub down of its hand painted signage. ConEd has since moved into large building east of the tracks on Park Avenue and we were pleasantly surprised that they chose this site to relocate to. One can still see some remnants of the old painted lettering above the lower floor windows but not much is left to intimate the original use of the structure.
