I scheduled a tour for a group of college students who were in NYC for a week for a finance class. We wanted to see some of the history of the people of NYC. The Museum at Eldridge did not disappoint. Judy, the Education Director tailored the tour for the group, both in terms of level of detail (college vs. younger students) and weaving in details about the financial aspects of the history. She was great. The students all really enjoyed the tour.
The building has been lovingly restored to all of its splendor and you can almost visualize services during its peak. The Lower Eastside was one of the most crowded places in the world at that time and you can imagine the spirituality the members felt walking from the streets into this beautiful sanctuary. We had a rather full schedule the day we went, so we were not able to linger much after the tour ended. I will definately be going back when I am next in NYC. There is a great interactive exhibit in the basement that deserves more time!
