Parsons School of Design alumnus with a BFA in fashion, who has worked in the menswear industry for several years.

A postcard from 1935 shows the positioning of the Claremont Inn over at Riverside Drive and 124th Street before it burned down years later. One can see how the location and the views at the historic inn made it an attraction for those who were looking for a bit of respite uptown. We wished we could have seen it back in the day but only a public park stands on the spot currently.
