Baruch Place: Lost Streets Of The Lower East Side

Another pic I took on Monday. again from forgotten-ny:
Late in its career, Goerck Street was renamed Baruch Place, in honor of Simon Baruch, the innovative physician who emigrated from Poland as a youth and settled in NYC in 1881. He was the father of financier Bernard Baruch. A small piece of Baruch Place is still in place, forming an arc with Mangin Street just south of Houston Street and the FDR Drive.
