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.
We have just started catching up again with the Central Harlem townhouse renovations in the West 130s and will be posting more interiors but wanted to compare an old facade photo in the meantime. One of the more interesting lost features of the house seen in the 1942 tax photo is that the cornice area had a very unique pediment and balustrade detail. There was also a balustrade above the portico entrance which no longer exist today. On a larger scale, there appears to have been a very substantial apartment building next door at one point and an amazing community garden exists there today: LINK.
