Angel Orensanz Foundation

Interior space of the Angel Orensanz Foundation


The Gothic Revival style building is located at 172 Norfolk Street, Lower East Side of Manhattan. Built in 1849, it is the oldest surviving synagogue building in New York City. Spanish sculptor and painter Angel Orensanz purchased the property in 1986, restored it as an art gallery and performance space. The building was later designated a historic landmark by the City, and it has become known as the Angel Orensanz Foundation Center for the Arts. The building’s interior resembles that of the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris. The venue is available for wedding receptions, parties, and special events.
