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 photo from 1910 shows the intersection of Broadway and 123rd Street as it was originally planned a century ago. The fancy prewar buildings with their decorative elements would be considered slums towards the mid 20th century and several blocks were demolished from this corner up to 125th Street to form the Morningside Gardens and Grant Houses as part towers in the park model of housing set in motion at that point in history. At the far left, one can see the wall that separates the 1 train as it ascends from its underground tunnel.
