Eldridge Street Synagogue is one of the best relics of the wave of Jewish Immigration through the Lower Manhattan. Opened in 1887, it is one of the first temples built by Jewish Immigrants settling in New York City.
Our friends at real estate website StreetEasy recently created this great virtual tour of the synagogue.
Built in 1887, the Eldridge Street Synagogue was one of the first temples built in the United States by Ashkenazi Jews. As such, it served has major center for Jewish life and prayer on the Lower East Side. Equal parts understated beauty and deep historical significance, today the site is both an active place of worship as well as museum.
