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.
Number 272 Manhattan Avenue on the corner of West 111th Street is one of the grandest prewar buildings in South Harlem but has been abandoned for several years now. All that has now changed as of last week since sidewalk sheds went up recently at the 57-unit residential apartments directly facing Morningside Park. DOB permits show that a gut renovation is at hand but it is unclear if this building will be primarily rentals or a condo conversion. This location is one of the best in South Harlem since it is right by the FDB retail corridor, a couple of blocks away from Central Park and is in close proximity to all major subway stops. With that said, the developer should do very well when all finishes up.
