History and architecture buffs will relish the special access afforded them by the New York Landmarks Conservancy this weekend, when more than 30 NYC religious institutions throw open their doors. Explore midtown’s Art Deco–style Temple Emanu-El, the largest synagogue in the world, and St. James Episcopal Church in the Bronx, a 19th-century Gothic Revival masterpiece that houses a major collection of Tiffany windows—including a reproduction of Da Vinci’s The Last Supper.
