A year before the “Crash” of Wall Street, the Spanish colony of NY and northeast suffered its own disaster, with the bankruptcy of the private Bank of Jaime Lago on 14th Street. The hundreds of ads that appeared in the San Antonio (and other) printings of La Prensa prove just much he was helping Latino/as in America transfer money around the world from his headquarters on 14th Street. In addition to the contact info and location of the bank, most of the ads in the newspaper ads stated: The great development of the internal and foreign departments each one of them duly organized, puts this bank in trusts to satisfy the demands of the banking in general.


The 12-story, 166,000-square-foot building at the corner of 7th Avenue lies on the Chelsea/Greenwich Village border and asking rent at 154 West 14th Street is about $60 per square foot. A representative for Abner, which has owned the property for decades.
