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.
An old photo from 1910 shows a very busy intersection of Hamilton Heights that apparently was often congested with pedestrians. The 145th Street subway kiosks are visible at either side of Broadway and crowds of people can be seen spilling out into the street. There is a bit of traffic to be had also with the arrival of automobiles and all appears to be just an average day in the Heights. This section of West Harlem actually looks pretty much the same today since most of these buildings are intact.
