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.
It has been a year since the new construction started up on the west 116th Street section of South Harlem. Number 306-308 West 116th Street (just west of FDB/8th Avenue) has been rising steadily and most of the facade finished up in the past couple of months. Windows have been slow to appear and it is still unclear whether some sort of new facade finishing will put in place for the 14-unit building. Signs on the construction site have the complete date set for Spring 2013 so there still is quite a bit of time left for this project to wrap up.
