Jewish Walking tour of NYC’s Lower East The Side

At the turn of the 20th century, NY’s Lower East Side was the most crowded place on Earth.  Let’s walk there now.

Jews arrived in what was then called New Amsterdam in the 1650’s.  Along our route, we will see a huge part of the history of the 20th century and how the Jewish people have helped to shape that history.

Tenements, Stores, Food, wine, Matzos, Candy, Politics, trolleys and subways, it’s all here.  It’s all part of the story.

Who will enjoy this event?:    Families, Groups, and Layovers, Grandparents and their Grandkids, history enthusiasts and some foodies to.  It’s a leisurely walk thru one of the older and most crowded parts of NYC.

A shul visit will be included on Sundays.
