Interesting question and comment. I noticed the same thing about Pitt.

Maybe it just me, but I have seen oh so many ship
manifests with Jewish immigrants traveling to Forsyth
Steet in Manhattan. All were low addresses like the
one above, and the majority in the 20 range. Possibly
someone who knows the Jewish history of Manhattan in
the early 20th Century could enlighten me on what drew
them to this location.
