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.
The above image is that of a cottage that apparently sat up in West Harlem sometimes around 1915. Upper West Harlem appears to have taken little more time to develop as one can see from the photo taken at 140th Street and Broadway. In modern times, this corner of Harlem is lined by prewar buildings on either side of the avenue and most of the wood frame houses have been replaced by brownstones on the side streets.
