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.
Raymond Sicignano painted portraits of Harlem storefronts over a decade ago and the above is a close up of M&G Diner back in the day. The diner has since closed, the yellow paint stripped from the building and the store space is now up for lease. Check out the full painting and some of the classic spots that have since disappeared on the Raymond Sicignano site: LINK
