Eldridge St will make your jaw drop. The magnificent renovation has restored its glory and it is somewhere you'll want to just take it all in, and take lots of photos. I was lucky to have Barry as my personal guide, and I heard about...More
We had scheduled a 10:00 AM tour at the Museum at Eldridge Street. The tickets were $14 each and we purchased them online. There were three other people with us on the hour long tour. The museum is a Synagogue from 1887 that has been...More
Chinatown is sort of seeping into LES so this old synagogue is squeezed between lots of Asian shops and markets. The exterior is simple, but the interior has been beautifully restored after years of deterioration. The docent tour was very worthwhile. This has been on...More
I thought the building and some of the stories of how it came about were fascinating, and I will say it is a hidden gem, but the gentleman leading the tour I was on was pretty uninspiring and even boring in his delivery. It was...More
We found out about this Synagogue after visiting the Tenement museum. What a hidden gem! The outside is nice but the inside is gorgeous! Admission was $14 (could have been cheaper) but featured a well informed tour. Beautiful ceilings and religious history. Stunning windows and...More
The Museum at Eldridge is a unique opportunity to experience the dedication of a community that has since moved on, yet holds lifetimes of memories for many. Beautifully restored and still a center of thought and art for those who visit. Loved it!
Had a private tour today with David silver and he did an amazing job on explaining the history and restoration of the Eldridge synagogue. It was very interesting and worth visiting, especially if you have an interest in Jewish migration to nyc.
Highly recommend stopping...More
This is a fantastic piece of NYC history. Its location is also really interesting as its almost completely surrounded by non-Jewish businesses (which just shows how the neighborhoods change with each new wave of immigrants).
Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where
many Chinatown residents exercise, play games, and chat the day away.
