5. Jewish Heritage Mural

ILGWU MuralThe mural constructed on the Lower East Side commemorating Jewish heritage in the area

This mural depicting the International Ladies Garment Workers’ Union was painted in the 1970s. The mural is located on East Broadway on the Lower East Side and was done as part of a beautification process for the area. It has indeed stood the test of time, however, debates abound over the demolition of the building, and with it the mural.
