Photographer's Note

Central Synagogue (Congregation Ahawath Chesed Shaar Hashomayim‎) is a Reform synagogue located at 652 Lexington Avenue, at the corner of East 55th Street in Midtown Manhattan.

It was built in 1870–1872 and was designed by Henry Fernbach in the Moorish Revival style as a copy of Budapest's Dohány Street Synagogue. It is among the oldest synagogue buildings still standing in the United States.

The building was designated a New York City landmark by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission in 1966. It was then designated a National Historic Landmark in 1975.
