Lincoln Square Synagogue

Lincoln Square Synagogue

2014

Architects: Cetra/Ruddy
Address: 180 Amsterdam Avenue, Manhattan
Standing on a corner of Amsterdam Avenue, I looked south and saw the side view of a glowing structure that I didn't recognize. I walked down two blocks and there it was, Cetra/Ruddy's brand-new home for the Lincoln Square Synagogue. The ribbons of glass undulate slightly and the whole thing just has an elegance to it that feels great, at least from the outside. I guess I'm just a sucker for floor-to-ceiling glass overall. And we'll be seeing more from Cetra/Ruddy on this blog, certainly.
