The new structure will house 124 apartments and the Faith Ringgold Children’s Museum of Art and Storytelling, named after Harlem native Faith Ringgold, an artist famous for her large painted story quilts. Paving the way for the new project was unanimous vote of support from the City Council on Oct. 13, which passed the rezoning change and easement necessary to build the new structure.
