Roof Top Apartment

Roof Top

A former synagogue on East Seventh Street in the East Village, built in 1908, was converted by a developer in the 1980s into five private residences. When the top floor of the converted synagogue came on the market in 2006, Dominique Camacho and Gary Hirschkron jumped at the chance. Though they missed out at that time, they bought the unit when it came up for sale again in 2007. The eco-friendly triplex has an exhibitionist streak.
