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.
That open lot at 2171 FDB received a new gate this year and the corner of 117th Street apparently saw a little more activity this week. A crew had been seen back in June cleaning up the lot and the new fence was installed but nothing much else happened. As of this past week, some netting and caution tape sectioned off the sidewalk out front. At the lower photo, one can see a pair of pipes on site which appear to be new on site. As far as permits are concerned, nothing has been filed at this point so the fate of this parcel of land is still a mystery. Any tips out there?
