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.
