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.
Harlem's FDB/8th Avenue is the only Manhattan representative standing in Curbed's annual neighborhood vote and is now basically up against the toughest competitor. Park Slope has had a lot of press this year as being the best place to live in the NYC area but the Curbed vote is based on popularity. Harlem Bespoke readers have swayed the vote heavily last week against Downtown Brooklyn (a 60 percent majority win, which BTW is the highest victory so far out of all the nabes) and if Park Slope gets defeated this time around, then uptown will be in the finals. So vote and vote often - just go to the Curbed site and click on the FDB button: LINK. Voting started right before noon and will only be counted during the next 24 hours.
