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.
The brownstone renovation at 241 Lenox Avenue had been stalled for quite some times but activity in the past year has now revealed a new facade. A planned residential conversion with store frontage filed back in 2008 did not begin to pick up steam until last year and the corner building at 122nd Street now finally has all if its scaffolding down. Walking by the landmark site this past week, we noticed refinished brownstone surfaces, a bright green cornice and matching green window frames (lower photo). This townhouse looks to be finishing up very soon and the next door neighbor will be the only other one that is left to fix up on the block.
