This building has gone from synagogue to 5-room residence and finally to one green haven. The eco-sanctuary located in East Village, NY was purchased by Dominique Camacho and Gary Hirschkron.

The couple has furnished the home with environmentally-friendly furniture, accessories, etc. The design of the home is very open and spacious with plenty of windows so there is a natural ventilation and lighting process that occurs reducing the use of power.

A lovely eco-home stuck in the jungle that is New York is a gentle reminder that we can change the world one step at a time.
