S. Jarmulowsky’s Bank

September 1st, 2012

This bank, founded by an ordained rabbi, apparently decided to decorate its new building (the tallest on the Lower East Side when it was finished in 1912) with a common symbol of financial stability and security: two guys sitting on toilets. The bank failed two years after this building opened.

    What a sad end to this building. Hopefully someone (or some group) can purchase it and repurpose it into something spectacular.
