Where You’ll Meet
Museum at Eldridge Street
Museum at Eldridge Street’s stunning facade—a blend of Moorish, Gothic, and Romanesque architecture—is just as impressive as its history. The National Historic Landmark, built in 1887, provides a glimpse into the past, putting visitors in the footsteps of the synagogue’s founders. Its authentic portrayal of the immigrant experience helped the venue land on Time Out New York’s list of NYC’s coolest museums while its stunning design led the New York Times to call it “gasp-inducing.”
