IIRC Halahca in Shulchan Aroch is that the Shul must be the most expensive house in town

interesting..
i was in new york on fri morn so i went to daven there..
they said one kapital of tihilim then the rabbi said a story about the mittle rebbe hearing the tochcha and fainted.
then he said we get a mazel tov - we closed on this building yesterday!
i was at the right place at the right time
shachris was 7:45 on time and there were about 30 people
good luck
the rabbi asked all where they will be eating on shabbos and if they want to eat with him.
you can only make a first impression ONCE
