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.
St. Nicholas Avenue's diagonal path uptown really creates interesting triangle intersections by the major boulevards and developers had to work with these unique parcels of land over a century ago. What one will find today are little miniature flatiron buildings like the one downtown that are wedge shaped with very ornate facade. The above photo shows the residential apartments at the 116th Street intersection and the curvy cornice is surprisingly still intact. We always tell folks to look up in NYC to discover beauty since many just go about their daily bustle without any regard to architectural wonders that surround them.
