In recognition of the 50th anniversary of the establishment of New York City’s Landmarks law and the Landmarks Preservation Board, architectural historian and preservationist I will trace the rich and varied architectural history of New York synagogues emphasizing remarkable buildings that have been lost, those that have been lovingly restored, and a significant number of noteworthy buildings that could and should be preserved. Some of the most notable of these buildings have been recognized as New York City Landmarks and others are included in recognized Historic Districts. Throughout this richly illustrated lecture This talk will introduce the necessary features that define all synagogues and the special features, including changing architectural styles and building configurations that are quintessentially New York.
