Jewish Daily Forward
Description:

Between 1912 and 1972, this impressive ten-story building was home to the offices of the Forverts, the Yiddish-language daily founded in 1897 to "spread the ideas of socialism among the Jewish masses." Once one of the most widely circulated Jewish papers in the world, it both served and shaped the large immigrant Jewish community that populated New York City in the first half of the 20th century.
