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.
Now that the corner building at 241 Lenox at 122nd Street has been restored, it would appear that maybe the adjacent brownstone at Number 243 might get fixed up sooner than later. A Bespoke reader sent in the above photo showing the new plywood fence up on the ground floor of the building that is the last to be restored on the West Side of Lenox Avenue's landmark district. The owner of the building had hired a pretty creative artist who spent the other weekend painting a mural depicting the local historic blocks and thus beautifying an otherwise unsightly construction site. Scaffolding had been up on the building about a year ago to stabilize it but not much has since happened to the facade since then. Any tips out there on this one?
