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 Mink Building in West Harlem went through some major renovations on the east wing this past year and now all the scaffolding has gone down. Walking past this section of 126th by Amsterdam recently, we noticed that brand new arched doorways have been installed on the lower floors. An art studio called Chashama has been housed here for several years but now the installation can be seen in full view. There's still a lot of space to be rented here but nothing major has come along as of yet. Check out the old images of this historic building when it was Harlem's major beer factory over a century ago: LINK
