Synagogue for the Arts (Civic Center Synagogue)




Synagogue for the Arts (Civic Center Synagogue)





Tribeca, Manhattan, New York City, United States of America

Date: 1965-67 [NB 59-1965]
Architect: William N. Breger
Owner: Civic Center Synagogue
Type: Synagogue

Style: Neo-Expressionist
Method of Construction: masonry structure [fireproof] Number of stories: 2

Summary

This synagogue, approximately fifty feet wide and 100 feet deep, is located near the middle of the block between Church Street and Broadway. It was constructed in 1965-67 for the Civic Center Synagogue, and was designed by William N. Breger. The neo-Expressionist style of the structure is clearly exhibited in its undulating surface and bold, geometric form. Faced in marble tile, the structure stands two stories high and accommodates not only a synagogue, but meeting rooms, offices, a social hall, and a kitchen. The curved upper part of the structure is supported by a comparatively small tripartite base — brick piers at the sides and a central entrance of metal and glass. The synagogue is recessed from the sidewalk and separated from it by an iron fence. The concrete plaza displays metal sculptures, and a bronze menorah is hung on the western wall of the base. The synagogue replaced a stone-faced store and loft building which was used by textile firms.

-- Description of the District---

The Tribeca East Historic District, which encompasses 197 buildings and four undeveloped lots, is located in the area bounded roughly by Canal Street on the north, Worth Street on the south, and Broadway and Cortlandt Alley on the east. Church Street forms much of the western boundary of the district, although blockfronts along Franklin and White Streets extend the district to West Broadway. The district extends east of Broadway, between Franklin and Canal Streets, to include buildings on the east side of Cortlandt Alley. While many of the district's cast-iron and masonry commercial buildings were erected beginning at mid-nineteenth century and continuing into the early twentieth century, when the dry goods district was located in this area, later buildings in the district — office buildings and banks — also served the textile trade.

The Tribeca East Historic District takes its name from the acronym TriBeCa, for Triangle Below Canal Street. Coined in the mid-1970s as the result of City Planning studies and the adoption of a Special Lower Manhattan Mixed Use District, the Tribeca name came to be applied to the area south of Canal Street, between Broadway and West Street, extending south to Vesey Street, which is larger than the zoning district. The Tribeca East Historic District has a distinct and special character within the larger Tribeca area defined by its many blockfronts of ornate store and loft buildings which reflect the district's role as the center for dry goods and related businesses in New York City.

During the decades after textile mills were established in New England with its abundant sources of water power, American textile markets began to flourish in New York City and other northern urban centers, where dry goods importers, general merchants, and wholesalers were concentrated. As New York City developed as the country's major port and trading center, a dry goods district sprang up on Pearl Street near the East River docks. After the disastrous fire of 1835, these merchants were scattered to various locations around Pearl Street, in proximity to the South Street seaport. As commercial shipping interests switched to longer ships and steam boats, it was found that these vessels could not easily navigate the East River, and new piers on the deeper Hudson River prospered. Beginning in the 1850s, the dry goods merchants relocated to the area north and west of Broadway and Chambers Street, allowing competitors to be in close contact with each other and closer to the Hudson River piers, and offering buyers the convenience of a central marketplace. That area of the city was transformed into a new commercial center after the A.T. Stewart Store, the fashionable "Marble Palace" which housed the first American department store, was built in 1845-46 on the east side of Broadway between Chambers and Reade Streets. During the early 1850s the first stories of many earlier residences were converted to commercial use, and some two dozen new store and loft buildings were constructed by the decade's end. By the end of the 1860s, the area of the district had been thoroughly transformed by the rapidly-growing textile trade, which continued to construct store and loft buildings during the next two decades to meet its needs.

The initial residential character of the area is recalled by No. 2 White Street (a designated New York City Landmark), which was built around 1808-09, most likely as a dwelling with a shop at the ground floor. Residences continued to be constructed in the area throughout the 1830s. Three in particular, within the boundaries of the district, retain their historic character — No. 35 Walker Street (c.1800), No. 74 Franklin Street (

messing around





My messing around shots are taken when i'm bored, not able to shoot outdoors (varying reasons), and I just need my shutter 'fix' for the day.

So here's a shot of some of the things hanging on the wall in the furnace/laundry room. We recently painted the walls in the house, hence, the painter's tape, brushes, and paint stick.

And that's a MasterCraft hammer.

The light was fairly low in this room at the time I shot this -- so the brightness was bumped up a bit. I'm also using the new tripod and ball-head more, so that's been pretty good so far. Manfrotto really does make a good product. My only caveat thus far with the 190xprob legs are the lever type leg tighteners -- I'm thinking I would prefer the twist-tightener type.
