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 former home of Ralph Ellison at 749 St. Nicholas Avenue and 147th Street originally appeared on the market in spring for $1.9 million and now has been reduced to $1.8 million. At 19-foot-wide, the multi-family townhouse is of generous proportion but appears to have been gut renovated with the goal of remaining a rental building. On the exterior, the front bay window was removed some time ago along with an original stoop which slightly detracts from the beauty of arched window at center. The price is probably for an investor to come who will not do much else to the facade but we can only dream that this Sugar Hill landmark will be restored completely one day.
