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.
A photo from 1910 shows the West Harlem block just north of 152nd Street and Broadway. The lower photo reveals that those Hamilton Height townhouses are pretty much intact and a storefront has been added to the corner building. Note also that these homes also had balustrades designed for the roof but only the cornices remain today.
