Angel Orensanz

This Gothic Revival building was built in 1849 and at that time was the largest synagogue in the United States.  It closed its doors in 1974 and was badly vandalized.  A Spanish sculptor named Angel Orensanz resurrected the building as a gallery and performance center about ten years later and founded the Angel Orensanz Foundation Center for the Arts.  Its interior is amazing – lots of photos in Google – and its list of performances and recordings and events is impressive.  I once attended a weekend of music honoring Sam Rivers.  If I lived in New York City, I would be sure to keep track of activities here and support their offerings.  Lovely structure.
