Memories of Yorkville’s “Kleindeutschland:” an Exhibit and Lecture

 

 

 

In a time when New York City was home to the third-largest population of German speakers in the world, Yorkville—and 86th Street in particular—was known for its German immigrant community of artisans, butchers, brewers, and shopkeepers. Join local historian and lifelong Yorkville resident Kathy Jolowicz as she presents her pictorial exhibit on the history of this neighborhood once known as the Upper East Side’s “Kleindeutschland” or Little Germany. The exhibit is a nostalgic exploration of Yorkville’s history with a particular focus on her personal memories that evoke the village feel of the area’s German heyday with reminiscences of famous restaurants, ethnic shops, dance halls, schools, churches, and a common language. Photography will not be permitted at this event.

Born in 1939 to immigrants from Leipzig, Germany, Kathy Jolowicz was raised and schooled in Yorkville/Kleindeutschland. She is an Upper East Side community leader dedicated to keeping the German heritage alive as a Division Marshall, and PR Committee member of the German American von Steuben Parade, as well as the founder of the German Language Learning Club.
