The Building at 4 Nowomiejska St.

ul. Nowomiejska 4

General

First information about building at Nowomiejska 4 comes from 1848. That was probably the year in which Jankiel Gutsztadt opened here a library and a bookstore that also soled used books. Later the store was moved to the building at 75 Piotrkowska Street [1]. The original wooden buildings from mid 1800s do not exist, and the area is part of a Rubinstein Passage. On Nowomiejska Street masonry buildings were erected.

The building on 4 Nowomiejska Street was build before 1895 by Izrael Cynamon.  Abram Kapłan joined him shortly after [2].

History

In the following years (the 19th and 20th century), four outhouses were constructed on the northern and southern parts of the property, which today extends all the way to Zachodnia Street [3].

First 3-story outhouse was built in 1896 [4]. Next one in 1898 [5]. Then, between 1900 and 1903 the existing buildings were enlarged. New outhouses and 1-story outbuildings were constructed, significantly increasing the number of apartments for rent  [6].
