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.
One of Harlem's oldest diners closed a couple of years back and now it looks like the storefront is going through its last leg of renovations. Facade work started just last month and now all of the yellow paint has been removed from the corner building at 383 West 125th Street that used to be the home of M & G Diner (center photo). The iconic sign is still somewhere under there but we noticed that the original diner interior had been totally gutted when peeking through the plywood out front this past weekend. This retail space is apparently available so the fate of the old fashion signage is still up in the air.
