In 1908 Hungarian Jews in the East Village purchased a home on 7th street and modified the building to become a synagogue. the new synagogue, which cost $10,000 had a Neo-classic and refined facade clad in stone. Four flat pilasters on the first fllor supported a cornice on which the second story-essentially a classic Greek temple. A stained glass fanlight is above the door.

Over the decades, the majority of Hungarian Jews left the East Village for Yorkville in Upper Manhattan. The synagogue closed in 1975, and by the mid1980s the interior was converted into 5 intimate, luxury residences. Although the interior of the former synagogue is apartments, the outside of the residence is "unmistakably a synagogue".
