October 2018 Newsletter

Autumn Tour  Your invitation to a very special tour of the Basilica of Saint Patrick’s Old Cathedral (the original Saint Patrick’s Cathedral) and the Eldridge Street Synagogue is attached.  The excursion will take place on Thursday, October 25th.  Each building is architecturally interesting in itself and is a designated New York City individual Landmark.
 
Both served the 19th century immigrant community and were central to those immigrants’ lives and history.  The Basilica was the first seat of the Holy See in New York and the Synagogue was one of the very first in New York that was actually built as a synagogue.
