Condo Rental at Jewish Daily Forward Building
One unit inside the Jewish Daily Forward condo building at 175 East Broadway is now available…to rent. Just last week, a listing recently surfaced on Halstead via Craigslist for a one-bedroom apartment on the fourth floor. And we’re still scratching our heads at the asking price – $3,300!
And according to Streeteasy, this is actually down from its April listing price of $3,450. What does the lucky renter receive for such a high price tag? That’s a good question. The answer is, well, nothing too crazy.

Of course, before the Jewish Daily Forward building was converted into posh luxury condos, it was home to a Yiddish-language daily periodical of the same name. The paper still exists, by the way. The ten-story building was completed in 1912, and held the offices until 1974, when the Forward sold to the Lau family and moved to midtown. For many years, a Chinese church occupied part of the space. Condos took over by the late 1990s.
If only we had a Bill-and-Ted telephone time machine to bring those early editors to current day. What would they say about their old digs? Be excellent to each other…?
