Designed by Henry Fernbach, the exterior of the Central Synagogue is dominated by two octagonal towers rising 122 feet that are meant to be reminiscences of Solomon’s Temple. The towers are topped with onion-shaped, green copper domes and has one large window accompanied by many smaller arched windows. The Central Synagogue is the oldest synagogue in continual usage in New York City.
