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 last time we checked on 2066 Fifth Avenue, a reader mentioned that the entire facade had been removed of every brick and we still were hoping that maybe parts of the old building would somehow make it back on the construction site. Walking by this section of Fifth Avenue and West 127th Street this past weekend, we noticed that the new brick underneath the scaffolding appears to have been mostly in place. At the lower photo, one can see that the building now consist of wide balconies on the right side with just one window on the left. Number 2066 would have been an interesting adaptive reuse project but this particularly picturesque block is not in a landmark district so developers can do as they will.
