Lower East Side
Eldridge Street Synagogue
Meticulously restored over the last 20 years, this beloved Moorish Revival landmark on the Lower East Side spans three centuries of New York City architecture and history. Serving as a cultural and spiritual home to generations of new immigrants, the synagogue has a popular on-site interactive museum exploring the Lower East Side's beginnings. Completed in 1887 by Eastern European Jews, the Eldridge Street Synagogue has a soaring 70-foot ceiling and stunning sanctuary. Guided tours of the synagogue are free with paid admission to the interactive museum.
