Virtual Tour of the Jewish Lower East Side
Hosted By: Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan
With Michael Kaback. The Lower East Side was once an epicenter for Jewish immigrant culture. This virtual tour guide will take you back in time through this historic neighborhood. Hear the pushcarts being moved through the crowded streets. Learn to make a “proper” egg cream, then grab some chalk and learn to play street games like skully and stoop ball. Visit shuls and shteibels, shops and markets. Explore sites including the Educational Alliance, The Local Haberdashery, Seward Park, and The Williamsburg Bridge. The Lower East Side has so much to offer – food, theatre, shuls, people, history, and, most of all, memories. See all this and more through the eyes of a licensed NYC tour guide, who spent the formative years of his life there. Please register in advance and the program link will be sent to you.
