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.
Lower Lenox Avenue probably has more unique brownstone storefronts than any other part of Harlem. A new renovated shell at the corner of 122nd Street has a distinctive outdoor space surrounded by lovely cast iron rails. Restauranteurs who are looking for spaces that stand out should probably walk around the Mount Morris Park Historic District and see what is available. There are quite a few new businesses opening in the area within the next year or so and this section of South Harlem will definitely be the nabe to look out for in the near future.
