Horowitz & Son Woolens

at 139 Eldrige Street, Lower East Side, on the ground floor of a large, apparently abandoned church. Looking around online, I found that Horowitz and Son sold goods here circa 1902 before they were run out of business and sued by the much larger American Woolen Company of New York in 1913. I also found a New York Times marraige notice for Bennett Horowitz, son of Barnatt Horowitz, "woolen jobber." And this is all that's left. Behind gates and lock and key.

Cool photos. Amazing that the lettering is still there.

You mean this window has been untouched since 1913? Wow.

This is like visual urban archaeology. I'm sure there's a lot more like this in the city. Traces of a civilization long gone, but still visible. Keep it up. But it would be nice if you gave the actual street addresses, in case we want to see for ourselves, pay homage, or take another picture. Thanks.

Oops. Sorry, you did give the street address on this one, but not on some of the others. Still, nice job.

Great stuff! I wonder what a "woolen jobber" is. I know what it means to job someone - usually in the chops! It is locked up so maybe someone works inside and does not want the glass jobbed.

Incredible that the window has been unchanged for almost a century. Fantastic find - it needs to be landmarked! :)

Hi Ken--great find. I am walking down Lafayette Street today--and plan on taking photos. Haven't heard from you in a while--hope you are well.
