Photo by myself of the Millinery Center Synagogue, in Midtown.
There is something very Old World about this building, and I can't put my finger on it. In black and white, it looks like it must have fifty years ago.
This synagogue near the garment district in Midtown holds ten Orthodox services a day.
The building draws attention to itself for its spare but elegant details. Outside, there is always a table full of linens for sale at wholesale prices. Yarmulke-wearing gentlemen hover nearby to answer questions.
I have yet to venture over to look at their goods, but now knowing their bargain prices, I plan to!
