232 East Broadway, Lower East Side, NYC

This simple and slightly sad building sits at 232 East Broadway on the Lower East Side near Seward Park. It was designed in 1959 by Henry G. Greene, an architect more known for his theater designs around the country. It seems to be a possible addition to the adjacent Bialystoker Home for the Aged at 228 East Broadway, which also has a lovely door surround, pictured below. The addition, listed online as East Broadway Medical Associates, seems empty and abandoned. Many people will probably be more familiar with this building which was used on the television show, Flight of the Conchords, as the New Zealand Consulate. The building was featured often and one of the main supporting characters worked there.
