"There is a building on the Lower East Side of Manhattan that is a sort of semi-ghost right now, hovering on the edge of real life." Renowned architectural critic Paul Goldberger described our building that way in 1977, before any real effort to preserve and restore the building had gotten underway. He called the sanctuary "somber and haunting, still grand and, with dust and disarray, ...mysterious in a way that it could never have been in its active days."
We're so glad that, over 40 years later, this special place is a ghost no longer. But hopefully even our beautifully restored sanctuary still hangs on to a bit of that mystery.
