Millinery Center, Midtown

Millinery Synagogue, NYC
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!

I like to find old stores or markets when I visit foreign countries.
Rather than to see advanced buildings.

Yes, it does look as if it could have been taken post-war. Those other people would have been wearing hats of some nature though - everyone did back then.

What happened to the scrolling blog updates? I liked them. Not complaining, just asking.
