Oh no! You’ve forgotten something! And it’s the Lower East Side!
You may think that you know the history of this area - immigration, tenements, Italians - but there is so much more! Do you know about the local ecology of the area? The Labor movement the area was host to? The neighborhood’s former American Indian sites and trails? No?!? Then this is the tour for you!!!
The Forgotten East Side walking tour will lead you around one of New York’s most historical areas. While being guided by an experienced professional you will visit Chinatown, the Bowery, historic churches, Five Points, former tenement districts, theaters, restaurants, and other popular landmarks. At these various locations you will learn about and discuss how the LES (that’s what the cool kids are calling it) evolved into a tenement district, birthed important cultural influences, is currently changing, and much much more!
Remember to sign up for the Forgotten Lower East Side Tour today!
