Stumbled upon this place by accident, and decided to go in to see what it is about. Found a very impressive center for jewish history and many other aspects (including a library and a genealogy lab). There are several changing exhibits I found quite interesting....More
The Centre for Jewish History (CJH) houses five organisations dealing with different aspects of both the past and present. If you are doing any research about Eastern Europe than this is the place for you. They have computers linked to many data banks.
I wanted to visit the Center because they have an exhibit on Jewish Cookbooks. I was not disappointed. The exhibit was organized, well mounted and interactive. There were additional excellent exhibits so I extended my visit. I highly recommend the Center. Go to The Coffee...More

Offering many of the city’s best restaurants and shops set amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building, which makes a good picture no matter what angle you photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant architecture as you stroll the streets - much of this neighborhood is part of a historic district that was
home to many of the city’s most famous department stores at the turn of the century. At the northern end of the neighborhood, Madison Square Park is best known for being home to a famous burger shack, but it can also be a quiet refuge to spend an afternoon, and it frequently hosts interesting public art exhibits. In the lower part of the Flatiron District you'll find Union Square, a bustling crossroads at all times of day and night.
