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 1970 shows one of Harlem's most notable historic neighborhood blocks that pretty much has been preserved in time because of its landmark status. One can see the same block today on West 138th Street at the lower photo and the buildings probably look better now then they did forty years ago. Strivers Row is still one of most desirable addresses to on in Harlem but the surrounding avenues still have a ways to go before better retail and restaurants arrive.
