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 Bailey Mansion of Barnum & Bailey fame was sold for a mere $1.4 million back in 2009 and renovations have been going for about a year now. This corner estate at St. Nicholas Place and 150th Street originally had a price tag of $10 million but when the recession hit, the owners quickly settled for an all cash deal. There still appears to be a lot of facade work still at hand since the property has not properly been restored for many decades. The only update we can see here as we walked by in the past week is that the large dormer window at top is currently getting replaced.
