THE EAST VILLAGE: Four Hundred Years of Art, Architecture and Activism

Lower East Side Preservation Initiative

Walking tour

$10.00 - $12.00

Join urban historian Barry Feldman for a walking tour and discussion of the history of Manhattan's East Village: an iconic and very historic downtown neighborhood.

Explore streets lined with nineteenth century tenements, trendy restaurants,  houses of worship and community gardens.  Contrast the wildly ornate buildings and the Jewish Walk of Fame that recall the neighborhood’s immigrant past with today’s lively night spots, community theaters and museums.  Admire Jim Power’s whimsical mosaics that unexpectedly appear on lampposts; the mid-nineteenth century work of “wunderkind” architect James Renwick; and the East 4th Street Cultural Arts Block, site of the first Yiddish theater production, the present home of La Mama and contemporary dance and theater venues.

Meet at the plaza in front of St. Mark's Church, Second Avenue and E 10th Street, 3:00pm.

RAIN DATE: Sunday June 9
