Carter Horsley's Review of Forward Building

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"The former Jewish Daily Forward Building at 173 East Broadway, perhaps the most prominent and important landmark on the Lower East Side, was converted in 2006 into 29 condominium apartments by Ronald Castellano and Christopher Hayes, who had previously converted the Garfield Building not far away at 142 Henry Street.

Its richly ornamented façade has the Forward Building incised above its arched entrance in English and in Yiddish near the top of the 10-story building." Read Carter's Full Review
