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.
Another interesting structure on upper Fifth Avenue can be found just slightly east on 129th Street. The multi-family, newish construction stands out amongst the townhouse neighbors but appears to have been originally designed to somewhat blend in. Symmetry had been planned at some point but bay windows might have been too much on the budget so those sections were bricked over. The windows on the lower level and upper level somehow ended up not matching and the same can be said about those exterior air conditioning units. There is a lot going on out front of this facade and a little more balance in the proportion of the portals would have really helped it along.
