A few days ago, it became known that the former Germania Bank Building at 190 Bowery was sold to developer Aby Rosen for $55 million. The longtime home and studio of photographer Jay Maisel has always been the subject of neighborhood curiosity. In the past day, a rare video inside the building has been making the rounds.
It offers a fascinating glimpse at the 1898 property’s fantastic architectural details. Have a look, courtesy of Digital Destinations.
Rosen is marketing the building for resale. 190 Bowery has been a New York City landmark since 2005.
If you’ve never seen New York Magazine’s 2008 feature on the building, it’s a good read.
