I visited the Eldridge Street Synagogue not really knowing what to expect. I was immediately blown away, though, by our tour guide Anita. She had such a quiet but clear passion for the Synagogue, its people and its history. She provided just the right level...More

A beautiful building that resonates with New York’s past. Come to see the great rose window re-envisioned by Kiki Smith.

Fabulous tour of this amazing synagogue. The reconstruction has taken years and is very impressive as was the historical and social context provided in the tour. I really enjoyed the time spent here.

The trip is worth it just to see the truly amazing window. The tour guide was knowledgeable and patient. The first floor is a display of the restoration efforts of the congregation.

The story and history of the synagogue is really fascinating. The details in the synagogue are beautiful to see. We enjoyed seeing how the synagogue worked: the front was for the rich and the back was for the poor. One of the seats in the...More

Off the beaten path near Chinatown. This is a restored synagogue built by Eastern European Jews in the late 1800’s. The artistry and architectural details were fabulous.

Fascinating glimpse into the lives of thousands of lower East Side Jews who took such pride in their beautiful synagogue. Our guide was very knowledgeable, being an Eastern European immigrant herself. Besides the gorgeous interior upstairs, there is a fabulous (though not super-extensive) exhibition downstairs...More

Chinatown
Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families
stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up
at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from
the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many
bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where

The guided tour took 45 minutes to an hour. Give it an hour to 1 1/2 hours at the most should do it.
