Yeshiva Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch, Washington Heights, NYC

IMG_5967

This educational building dates from 1960 and is sited on a sloped site at the corner of Bennett Avenue and West 186th Street. Because of the slope the building is elevated a story with recreational facilities for the school on the ground level under the structure. The building, listing different names on the front for the school, the building, and the education center, is actually just one component of the yeshiva complex. It was designed by David Moed, who designed a one-story yeshiva down the street in 1971 that also has blue accents and other synagogues and Jewish centers in the area.
