Re: The Lost Synagogues of Manhattan

The Shul is also well documented in a new book by Gerard Wolfe: The Synagogues of New York's Lower East Side, a Retrospective and Contemporary view. The second edition (Fordham Press) was published in 2013. Pages 132-137 with photos. The book party was at the Tenement Museum.

Full disclosure: I helped on the research as did many others on the Lower East Side:)
