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 famous Upper West Side prewar called the Apthorp was actually the sister building to Harlem's Graham Court and both buildings were built around a central courtyard. A photo form 1915 shows the actual court of the famous Harlem building located at 116th Street and ACP/7th Avenue. William Waldorf Astor had the uptown luxury building built back in 1898 and the Apthorp was constructed by 1908. Check our past post for a more current photo of the courtyard: LINK.
