Carter Horsley's Building Review
"This 8-story residential condominium at 158 Hester Street on the southeast corner at Mott Street in Chinatown is known as Hester Gardens and has 61 apartments.

Toy quoted Shing Wah Yeung, a Well-Come Holdings vice president, as stating that "many buyers learned about the building by word of mouth," adding that "Chinatown is a different animal compared to the rest of Manhattan; it many ways it s an easier market to target than the mainstream.""
