God's Will

It is rumored that on the weedy overgrown lot upon which this building stands, a mysterious burning bush inspired the builder to implement this wave-like balcony treatment as a secret symbol of Kabbalistic power and a warning to the enemies of Yahweh.

Creative balcony treatment

This hypnotizing and rapturous diagonal balcony arrangement is the sort of "outside the box" creativity that will guarantee a place for Hasid design in the annals of architectural history.

Bedford Avenue beauty

The raw inner beauty of this Hasidic wonder shines through even on dark, dreary days.
