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.
One of the goals for the adaptive reuse condo conversion of the formerly abandoned PS90 building in Central Harlem was also to have a community space established and it now looks like one will finally arrive. The Wall Street Journal reports that the National Dance Institute has finally found a permanent home after 34 years and that the new residence is indeed in Harlem. A total of 18,000-square-foot of space inside the converted schoolhouse at 220 West 148th Street has been sold for $6 million this past week to the organization known for providing dance education and courses to public schools. The National Dance Institute focuses on low-income neighborhoods and the fact that it is now located in a former New York school building is all the more fitting.
