- Explore this breath-taking National Historic Landmark on New York City’s Lower East Side

Discover the story of Jewish immigrant life at the turn of the last century and the mass migration of Jewish immigrants to Manhattan's Lower East Side. It's all in the Museum at Eldridge Street, one of the city's most influential and somewhat hidden buildings!
The Museum at Eldridge Street is housed inside the Eldridge Street Synagogue, a restored National Historic Landmark. Learn about Jewish life and history as you take in the grand Ark, the beautiful windows, and the stunning, green-tipped glass chandelier!
You can get a lot of treasures in Chinatown, but getting an education on Jewish history in one of New York's coolest buildings is a must!
