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 above photo shows the west side of Lenox Avenue between 124th and 125th Street back in 1932. Today this is the big, grassy open lot that has been gated for some times now just north of the Mount Morris Park Historic District. The smaller buildings disappeared some times ago while a larger, abandoned structure facing 125th Street burned down a few years back in a fire. There were talks of possibly a new hotel on this corner of Lenox more recently but nothing much has happened since then.
