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.
Harlem Renaissance poet Langston Hughes' brownstone at 20 East 127th has been off and on the market for the past few years but nothing appears to have happen to restore the building. We walked by the block just east of Fifth Avenue and noticed that the once verdant vines covering the facade have since withered (brownstone at center of photo). Our coverage on the historic home has also procured a few letterers inquiring on why the property owner has not accepted some of the buyer bids out but we do not have any answers. Does anyone have more details on why this house did not sell?
