Okay, since I did not give any details of the picture I posted, here are details for the readers who asked to know more. These gleaming domes sit atop the Central Synagogue in New York City’s Upper East Side. Central Synagogue remains the crown jewel of the Manhattan Moorish Revival. Dating from 1872 (making it the oldest synagogue in continuous use), its beauty actually came under criticism in earlier days by those who felt its excess would inspire envy. Nevertheless, its rich blue-and-gold ceilings, intricately tiled floors, horseshoe arches, and fine architecture have led the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission to call it the ”finest example of Moorish Revival Architecture in New York City.” Central Synagogue is one of the largest Jewish congregations in North America and the oldest synagogue in New York City in continuous use.
