Museum at Eldridge Street

Museum at Eldridge Street

The Museum at Eldridge Street is a gorgeous landmark housed inside the Eldridge Street Synagogue. When it first opened in 1887, it was the first great house of worship built in America by Jewish Immigrants from Eastern Europe. More than a century later, it remains a cultural and religious beacon for those who wish to learn more about Jewish New York and the storied history of the immigrants who built the Lower East Side.

It is a true hidden treasure, flanked by unassuming Chinese restaurants and shops. I was pleasantly surprised the first time I spotted this magnificent structure after coming out of a Fujianese hole-in-the-wall nearby.
