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.
Another old photo of the Harlem Express circa 1900 shows the uniforms worn in the day by the conductors. It appears the guy in charge is probably wearing the bowler and the traditional engineer's cap can be seen on the gentleman second in command. The elevated train predates the subway systems and were mostly dismantled when the underground system of public transportation became the standard for the city.
