East Window - Synagogue at Eldridge Street

Posted by Yonatan (New York, United States) on 22 January 2013 in Architecture.

Things have been busy over the past month or so leaving me absent from Aminus happenings. I'm looking forward to hopefully getting back into my routine of looking at all your wonderful photographs. Part of my absence has also been because of lack of inspiration from a photography point of view. I'm really hoping for a nice blanket of snow to hit New York City, but the past couple of weeks has just been cold and grey.

My wife and I ventured out on Martin Luther King Day to visit an old synagogue on the Lower East Side of Manhattan which was recently restored. The architecture was beautiful and I'd like to share some of the highlights.

Pictured above is the East Window which was designed by Kiki Smith. At the enter of this massive window is a Star of David and throughout the stained glass are many five-pointed stars symbolizing America. The windows metal frame weighs over 4,000 pounds and more than 1,200 pieces of stained glass compromise the design.

If you enjoy my work you may visit my permanent website where you can view my photos.


Thank you for taking some time to take a look at my photographs. I hope you enjoy your stop at my blog.

I invite you all to visit frequently and leave comments and feedback. I would really appreciate constructive criticism that will help me improve. You don't need to be a photographer to help me, tell me what you like and don't like. If you have any suggestions of interesting things to shoot or fun techniques to try I'd also love to know.

Best wishes,
