Old houses of worship

Discussion in 'Leica and Rangefinders' started by vic_., May 3, 2008.

  1. If you go north on Bellevue Avenue in Newport, Rhode Island, past the mansions, past the International Tennis Hall of Fame, you will continue to Touro Street, where the oldest syanagogue in the US is there; and stil open for services since 1658. President JFK visited the synagogue less than two months before his life was cut short. http://www.tourosynagogue.org/ Newport also has the first US Naval Headquarters, though the sign outside the building now says "Bingo on Sundays." A lot of photographic opportunities abound.
