Learn a little of this and a little of that while we walk into the past (perhaps even discover your roots) as we stroll along East Broadway. This stretch of the Lower East Side allows you to explore the streets of New York's Chinese and Eastern European Jewish Immigrants. Recapture the excitement of this quintessential New York experience in its current day hustle and bustle while imagining the streets full of the pushcarts that once dominated everyday life.
Your “Walkabout” will take you to:
- New York City's oldest burial ground
- The Settlement House that transformed many immigrants into U.S. citizens
- Several historical synagogues
- The Church of the Transfiguration
- 1st Chinese Presbyterian Church
- Sung Tak Buddhist Temple
- Tea shops
- Orchard Street shops – where you can get a real New York bargain!
Meeting Location: Near the corner of Essex and Canal (Lower East Side, NY). (Exact meeting location details will be provided immediately upon purchase of tickets.)
*Note: Tour will be approximately 2 hours long -rain or shine
