Here's a not-unusual sight on the Lower East Side: the old entrance of a now-defunct temple—in this case, the First Roumanian-American Congregation.
Of course, the 150-year-old synagogue famously collapsed back in 2006 when the roof caved in. This doorway is all that remains. Built around is a new building housing Museum 52, a new art space. It seems a sort of an insult to keep the doorway but have it used for secular purposes. I'm all for historical preservation, but this example feels particularly crass.
