Union Square's High-Concept Sukkahs

On September 19, the finalists of the Sukkah City design competition unveiled their re-imagined sukkahs in New York’s Union Square. Locals and tourists alike rubbed shoulders to get a closer look at the ritual huts, which transformed the downtown park into an architectural showcase.

The sukkahs will remain in Union Square through September 20. After that, one winning design selected by selected by New York magazine readers will remain up through October 2. In addition, two of the sukkahs will be on view through the Sukkot holiday at the Yeshiva University Museum, situated inside New York’s Center for Jewish History.
