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.
In July of 1964 Harlem made the cover of Time magazine because of all the social issues happening uptown. With the neighborhood declining and many folks leaving Harlem in the decades after the Depression years, there was not a lot of positive things to note about the iconic section of north Manhattan. Today, the opposite is happening with the restoration of historic blocks and the return of the middle class so maybe Harlem will make a national cover for other reasons if there ever were a followup story.
