Incredible Lower East Side Food and History Tour

from $85
Join Alex on a Lower East Side tour through a neighborhood once spanning Canal to present day 14th Street. We’ll discuss its history, from wealthy farmland, to tenement filled slums, and back to prosperity again. We’ll visit 17th century Dutch colonial sites, talk about 19th century Irish, German, Italian, and Jewish immigration, and discuss the neighborhood’s place in contemporary pop culture. Stops include famous churches, synagogues, music clubs, theaters, and markets that all have deep historical connections to the neighborhood. But it’s not all history. The tour stops four times to enjoy the neighborhood’s famous foods and kosher specialties. We’ll save you hours of time by skipping the lines at several Lower East Side institutions. Arrive hungry, because you’ll experience NYC’s crispiest falafel, oldest hot dog, most iconic pastrami, tastiest smoked fish, and famous chocolate during the tour!!
