LOWER EAST SIDE HISTORY TOUR

The Lower East Side is the neighborhood that has been the melting pot for immigrants for generations. Immigrants from Italians, Jews, Germans, Latinos, and Asians have made this area home. As one immigrant group left another wave of immigrants came in. Once the most densely populated place on the planet it has been gentrified. Today it is a desired neighborhood with luxury condos. You can still find old tenements, mom and pop shops amongst hip designer boutiques and restaurants. The face of the Lower East Side has changed but come hear the tales of how immigrants struggled with its rich history and cultural diversity.
