Agudas Achim Synagogue - Chicago - closed for decades

The World > North America > USA

  • gefällt mir / gefällt mir nicht

This Synagogue is an "open secret" - it's been part of Open House Chicago. and has not been used in decades. The community slowly changed from Hebrew to Vietnamese. With nobody to support this house of worship, it sits, slowly decaying, minimally maintained, in limbo. It's an amazing building to shoot - at the same time, almost sad. Water is slowly damaging everything, from ceilings to floors - and everything inbetween. What's truly disgusting is the vandalism. Photographers often drive for miles to shoot the exterior. Some, not happy with that, break in - then cause damage. One person caused almost $75,000 in damage in only a couple of hours, destroying and damaging stained glass and more.

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
