A transcendent experience. Totally amazing, one can almost go back in time here and feel the past. Hear the prayers, and listen to conversations a hundred years old. If you came from somewhere else come here, you will feel at home no matter what or who you worship. Highly recommended!
Beautiful historic place situated in China town. Built in 1887 Synagogue is old and famous and still popular. Very carefully maintained inside and outside. It's very difficult to have it cleaned due to number of tourists visiting the place. Lots of historical documents and artifacts pertaining to active immigrant arrival to NYC. On Mondays you pay what you wish to enter.
