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.
Another photo from the late 19th century shows the new Harvard shell being hauled over at the collegiate boating houses that used to exist on the east side by the Harlem River. Boating apparently was a popular activity back in the early days before industry polluted much of the waterways of Manhattan. Nowadays, kayaking has made a return on the west side over at the Hudson for those who dare brave the waters of New York City.
