Upper West Side Mall Dedicated in Memory of Henry Moskowitz, Real Estate Pioneer

NEW YORK, NY—North Mall, located at West 90th Street and Broadway, has been rededicated in memory of Henry Moskowitz, a longtime resident and active community member of the Upper West Side, who passed away recently at 102.

An active member of the Jewish and secular communities, Moskowitz was a philanthropist, savvy investor and preeminent property owner respected in many business circles. Moskowitz built an extensive portfolio of multifamily, hotel, and commercial properties throughout the greater New York metropolitan area and in Israel. He and his family lived at 90th Street and Riverside Drive for more than 60 years.

On November 18, the surviving members of the Moskowitz family—Henry’s wife Rose, sons Jake, Dan, and Mark, and daughter Sonia, and their families and friends, gathered with officials from the Broadway Mall Association, Young Israel of the Upper West Side, and the New York City Department of Parks—to honor Moskowitz.

"Throughout our lives, my mother Rose, brothers Jake and Dan, sister Sonia and I, have walked along this path while going shopping or to schul, school, play dates and back home," his son Mark stated."It represents a road well traveled and brings with it only the fondest memories of our wonderful Upper West Side community."
