Conservative Synagogue Of Fifth Avenue To Be Expanded, Flipped In Greenwich Village

A synagogue whose structure served severed varied purposes before becoming a house of worship will be getting a somewhat unusual expansion and facelift. On Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved a proposal from the Conservative Synagogue of Fifth Avenue, located at 11 East 11th Street, between Fifth Avenue and University Place in Greenwich Village.

It was presented by preservation consultant Bill Higgins of Higgins Quasebarth & Partners, though Rabbi Joe Schwartz also spoke to say how much his congregation needs expanded and updated facilities.
