  • This is one of my top choices for museums in the City. Every time I go I learn something new. The architecture and stained glass windows are amazing. The informative exhibit in the basement is worth visiting after or before the tour.
  • What an amazing place to visit. The tour was absolutely wonderful with so much information. The history is interesting and the building itself is a work of art. Photos dont do it justice.
  • “Mesmerizing stained glass, never miss it!” Located in Chinatown, Eldridge Street Synagogue may be the most beautiful synagogue in New York. Especially, never miss the main stained glass which was added in 2010 during its restoration. I've seen many stained glassed while traveling America, but haven't met such one. Amazing. When I first entered into an entrance, I thought $14 admission fee is a little bit too much for its small size. It changed as going up to the main floor and seeing a sea-like blue stained glass. The building is not so big like St. Patrik Cathedral or E-Manuel Temple on 5th Ave so one can look around in 20 mins if you walk fast. But I spent almost 2 hrs just looking all the stained glasses and delicate ornaments. Just walk through the nave or sit on it for a while and appreciate its beauty.
  • A gem worth searching out. Tour person Elsa was so personable and explained everything so well w interesting stories from her family background. Wonderfully restored. I thank the congregation for opening their beautiful house of worship to share. Totally worth finding. I walked .4 mile from there to the tenament museum - which accents the them of immigrants and community.
  • Great museum of a very old synagogue. The museum shows what Jewish life was like over 100 years ago in New York City. The tour guides were very knowledgeable

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
