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 Lexington Hill condos (originally the Glass Spire) at 1635 Lexington Avenue reportedly had a supermarket planned for the ground floor and that now appears to be happening. We walked by the brand new development just next to the 103 Street subway stop on Lexington Avenue and noticed that the ground floor space seems to be finishing up with the final touches before opening. Restaurants such as the Lexington Social, East Harlem Cafe, El Aguila and El Paso are located within the surrounding blocks so everything seems to be coming together for this part of East Harlem.
