museum at eldridge street

We were supposed to got to the Mets-Giants game yesterday but it rained. And rained. On a whim, I picked a museum off my list (my new goal is to visit all the museums in New York) - the Museum at Eldridge Street. It's more synagogue than museum (personally, I think they call it a "museum" to get more visitors), since they still hold weekly services. The building dates from 1887 and recently underwent a twenty-year $20 million restoration. It's really very beautiful - definitely worth visiting if you find yourself in Chinatown with some time to kill.
