Bialystoker Synagogue is housed in a fieldstone building built in 1826 in the late Federal style. The building is made of Manhattan schist from a quarry on nearby Pitt Street. The exterior is marked by three windows over three doors framed with round arches, a low flight of brownstone steps, a low pitched roof with a lunette window and a wooden cornice. It was first designed as the Willett Street Methodist Episcopal Church. The interior is notable for its lavish furnishings, decorative wall painting and stained glass, dating from 1905.
