Manager info

Year Purchased: 1996

About: From Beacon Hill to Sugar Hill. We're Carolyn Owerka and Alyasha Owerka-Moore, two generations continuing our family's legacies in Harlem. We garden: nurturing the peonies brought from China as wedding gifts to our maternal great-grandparents in 1880. We create: she is an art historian who restores fine art textiles and old houses and he creates everything from concept to product to the 'buzz' for the 'next trend' in the men's fashion industry. You'll stay in his top floor pied-à-terre since he is now often on the West coast, in HK or Boston. Yes, we love jazz: he specializes in early jump blues and the evolution of early Black rock n' roll. No, we don't cook but are very successful reservation and suggestion makers, having enjoyed the treasures of this city for the last 4 decades.
