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.
We have seen several photos of the Hudson-Fulton Celebration in 1909 but most of them have been by Riverside Drive. An image of a parade during this time shows an one particular event that actually traveled through Central Harlem. The above float photo was taken at Lenox Avenue and 133rd Street and was one of many that traveled through Harlem as part of the city wide celebration of Henry Hudson's discovery of the river that would be named after him.
