Charming museum and synagogue - faithfully restored with an interesting retelling of the history of Eldridge Street. Staff is quite welcoming and a trip to visit the museum will put you in a really interesting area - the Lower East Side.

This is a stop you have to make. Go back in time to 1900 and see how the emigrants who came to this country lived and worked. There are many different 1 hour tours and each one is more interesting then the next. A must...More

WE discovered this museum/synagogue while looking for things to do near the Tenament museum. A very nice guided tour of this restored synagogue. Our non-jewish companions found the tour enlightening as it explained jewish life in NYC at the turn of ther century.

Take the tour. It lasts about 45 minutes, but provides great insight into the history of the synagogue. We also enjoyed the 20 minute video about the restoration effort. Glad we went.

Chinatown
Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families
stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up
at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from
the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many
bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where
