Only The Subway Stop Remains

The Lower East Side, in memory.

Special To The Jewish Week
12/26/2012

Long before there were Jewish shopping districts in Brooklyn and Queens, there was the Lower East Side.

In fact, long before there were Century 21 for clothes, DSW for shoes and 99-cent stores for everything else, there was the Lower East Side.

For more than a century, the Lower East Side had been the quintessential locale for a Jewish book, a kosher meal (meat or dairy) and, of course, a bargain.
