Beautiful New York

A Celebration of the City

The Top 100 Greatest NYC Buildings — #78

Park East Synagogue

Architect: Schneider & Herter
Style: Moorish
Use: House of Worship
Opened: 1890
Borough: Manhattan

Over the doorway of this home for Congregation Zichron Ephraim reads the Hebrew inscription, “Enter into His gates with Thanksgiving and into His courts with praise.” How appropriate for this asymmetrical extravaganza of Upper East Side Orthodoxy.
