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.
A rather large wood frame house with grand porches used to be on the block just east of Lenox Avenue as a photo from 1932 shows. The resident consisted of two separate houses but built together as one unit. An interesting feature here is the widow's walk at the top of the house which might have been of use when the surrounding area was more pastoral. It's unclear how long the structure lasted through the mid century but one can see that a rather basic taller building has been on the parcel were the said house stood. Photo via NYPL
