Testament to Time: Buildings on the LES the second time around

Sun October 23 @ 10:45 am - 1:15 pm EDT

This new walking tour explores how some LES buildings have changed their original purpose -evolving to accommodate a changing neighborhood

Many Landmark worthy buildings dotted the Lower East Side during the iconic period of immigrant Jewish settlement. Many survived, but have been repurposed to meet contemporary needs and fashion as the neighborhood evolved -and still continues to change.

Join our architectural specialist, Urban Historian Barry Feldman, as he revisits several of these buildings: The Forward, Educational Alliance, Jarmulowsky Bank, Eldridge Street Synagogue, and others , for a discussion of the original mission of each building and how it compares to their current status. This NEW walking tour lasts approximately 2 hours and has a fair amount of walking, and we tour RAIN OR SHINE.

In order to enable you to hear the guide, we will be using an app for smart phones. Bring earphones for your cell.

The price of this tour is $27 for Adults, $25 for Seniors, and $24 for students . Tickets will be an additional $3PP on the day of the tour – pending availability .
