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 major laundry service over in East Harlem at the early part of the last century had an army of wagons for deliveries which also had a well trained staff to help maintain them. A photo from 1929 shows a uniformed worker custom painting a wagon and its logo in the building's garage which was at 111 East 128th Street. These delivery trucks were definitively part of the automobile age even though they still retained some of the old wagon aesthetic on the tale end.
