Fifth Avenue Synagogue, Upper East Side, NYC

A building in New York City that no one ever mentions is the Fifth Avenue Synagogue, which is just off Fifth on 62nd Street. Designed by prolific synagogue architect Percival Goodman, this is a unique example of an urban design, when his other designs are almost all freestanding structures in a more suburban environment. The window shapes, one of the only overt design elements, represent peace.

  1. one of my favorite Goodman designs. Sleek, interesting and perfect for a tight lot in Manhattan.
