Parsons School of Design alumnus with a BFA in fashion, who has worked in the menswear industry for several years.

An old image taken of 125th Street looking west from today's Adam Clayton Powell Boulevard has one notable building missing at the left side of the street. The Hotel Theresa was finished around 1913, so the above photo of the 125th Street intersection of 7th Avenue must have been taken at the turn of the century. Other landmarks that are gone include the 8th Avenue elevated train in the distance and the Harlem Opera House which can be seen to the right (with statues on top). Photo via The Library of Congress
