More About Jai Jai (Ramsey) Greenfield
For Nashville-reared Greenfield, frequent visits to her grandparents and cousins in Harlem were a childhood highlight. During those trips she heard stories of the neighborhood's heyday during the 1920s and 1930s, a time when Harlem was the social center for Manhattan nightlife and a thriving arts and music center.
Harlem Vintage reflects that heritage — it features vintage photographs of Greenfield's grandparents — while evoking wine production. Natural countertops have been crafted of leaves and cork, mahogany wood and curved ceilings are reminiscent of the barrels where wine is stored.
Harlem Vintage has been recognized as a “vanguard” and “model” for Harlem’s economic development by publications such as the Wall Street Journal, Crain’s New York Business, Time Out New York and Black Enterprise.
A veteran of Smith Barney's investment banking division and Morgan Stanley's sales and trading department, Greenfield isn't afraid of hard work, long hours or blazing a trail as one of the few African-American females to pursue a career on Wall Street and as an entrepreneur in the retail wine industry.
