WARREN CONNECTICUT and NEW YORK NEW YORK – We woke up on a foggy morning in Connecticut to drive to New York and the Lower East Side to join some friends who had organized a tour of the Tenement Museum and the Eldridge Street Synagogue. Worth a voyage.

Day 1802 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK – Congregation Shaaray Tefila (Hebrew for Gates of Prayer) at Second Avenue and 79th Street.   The current sanctuary of this congregation, which was organized in 1859, was dedicated in 1959.  It was converted from a Trans-Lux movie theater.  I’ve taken the liberty of posting the image twice – once in color and once in gray scale.
