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.
An inside tip has confirmed that a French restaurant has secured the lease at 341 St. Nicholas Avenue over at West Central Harlem's border by the park. The building's management sent us an archival photo of the location on the corner of West 127th Street a couple of years back and wanted to ask readers what they thought best suited the neighborhood. Apparently a new restaurant is the answer and this one will be called La Maison Harlem. Commercial development on the west side has been slower in than South Harlem in the past few years so this is a good sign of things to come. The close proximity to the express train should also help in this case.
