Synagogue Part of the Street (Anschei Chesed)


Unlike in the suburbs, urban synagogues and churches are more integrated into their environment. Anschei Chesed at 100th St is nestled and blends into and alongside the apartment buildings up and down West End Avenue. The high arched doors and the domed roof facade distinguish it from the surrounding architecture. Modest in stature, it’s a handsome little building, part of the Street.
