Before Snapchat, there were postcards! One hundred years ago, postcards were a wonderful way to share views of new places with friends and family – including images of the exotic Lower East Side! To celebrate our exhibit of historic postcards from the Blavatnik Archive, we’ll take to the streets and see what these local sites look like today. We’ll visit the spot where pushcarts reigned supreme and pickles were the original fast food. Along the way we’ll hear what immigrants and tourists alike thought of the “most crowded place on earth.” Afterwards warm up with hot cider and treats as we create our own postcards.
Recommended for families with children ages 7-11.
