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 above photo taken by James Van Der Zee of the Alpha Phi Alpha basketball team in 1926 had us wondering if the fraternity house was in Harlem or not. Looking at the doorway and the cast iron rails as clues, one can conclude that this was at Strivers Row in the upper 130s. Compared to the current lower photo, it becomes evident that this was the case but we can't quite make out the house number. Does anyone have additional information on this photo?
