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 1915 shows one of the new restaurants opening in Central Harlem just after the turn of the century. The Tricterian had white tablecloth, bentwood seats, painted murals, lincrusta dado detail and exposed beams which all apparently made a very fancy setting for the new Harlem middle class that were establishing themselves around 145th Street. This restaurant disappeared long ago and there has yet to be a replacement of this nature in the more northern reaches of Harlem today.
