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 abandoned old building at 115th and FDB in South Harlem has been empty for some times now but construction apparently in picking up relatively quickly on this renovation project. Dumpsters were seen out front a couple of weeks ago on the site and a Bespoke reader just sent in a photo of a large crane lifting building materials into the upper windows. If all reports are correct, expect new market rate rental units to arrive in this area of South Harlem within a year or so.
