Dramatic historic details elevate this mezzanine loft in the Forward Building at 175 East Broadway, one of the Lower East Side/Two Bridges neighborhood’s most coveted pre-war apartment buildings, as well as being one of its most interesting landmarks. Designed in the Beaux-Arts style, the building is the former headquarters of the Jewish Daily Forward newspaper–previously Forverts, founded in 1897 by a group of Yiddish-speaking socialists. This unique two-bedroom home–it was owned by actress Tatum O’Neal from 2006 to 2013 when she sold it for $1.72 million–asking $2.495 million, boasts a dramatic original decorative plaster ceiling dome with a sunburst centerpiece in the living room; both of its bedrooms have an original stained glass window.

The apartment is directly accessible from the elevator; in addition to its stunning historic details, this loft condominium faces Seward Park from each of its windows, offering a daily dose of trees, gardens and playgrounds. The sleek open kitchen has been outfitted with a Subzero refrigerator and Miele oven, gas cooktop, dishwasher and washer/dryer. Floors are wide-plank hardwood throughout and ceilings are nine feet tall; the apartment has central A/C.
