Sukkah City (Yes I know I'm late posting these you don't have to rub it in)

These are some photos of one of the winners for the Sukkah City Competition here in New York City. You might be asking, what is a sukkah? Well, its a temporary hut built for the week long Jewish holiday of Sukkot, in commemoration of the huts the Jews lived in when they were wandering around in the desert for 40 years.  If you want a more thorough explanation, click here.

This sukkah, designed by Matter Practice (based in Brooklyn, NY) was on Amsterdam Avenue, on the Upper West Side of New York City, right outside of Jewish Community Center.
