It was three years ago – an eternity – when the Nativity Mission School at 204 Forsyth Street was razed in the name of luxury living.

The self-proclaimed “edgy refinement” of upper Forsyth Street is little more than a hole in the ground.

The former headquarters of the Jesuit-run Nativity Mission School is gone from the Lower East Side landscape. Its eighty-six years standing at 204 Forsyth Street came to an end this week. Demolition crews diligently dismantled the brickwork these last couple months, and now nothing is left. This lot and its adjacent parking parcel will be […]

It’s somewhat ironic that the Nativity Mission School – a Jesuit-run organization which helped fight Lower East Side poverty for four decades – would meet its maker during Christmastime. The encasement of steel and netting arrived at 204 Forsyth Street just before the holidays, kicking off a period of demolition and redevelopment. All of the […]
