Event description
This new walking tour explores how some LES buildings have changed their original purpose -evolving to accommodate a changing neighborhood

About this event

Many Landmark worthy buildings dotted the Lower East Side during the iconic period of immigrant Jewish settlement. Many survived, but have been repurposed to meet contemporary needs and fashion as the neighborhood evolved -and still continues to change.

Join our architectural specialist, Urban Historian Barry Feldman, as he revisits several of these buildings: The Forward, Educational Alliance, Jarmulowsky Bank, Eldridge Street Synagogue, and others , for a discussion of the original mission of each building and how it compares to their current status. This NEW walking tour lasts approximately 2 hours and has a fair amount of walking, and we tour RAIN OR SHINE.

Organizer Lower East Side Jewish Conservancy

Organizer of Testament to Time: Great Buildings on the LES the second time around

The Lower East Side Jewish Conservancy is an educational and cultural organization representing many Lower East Side synagogues, schools, and cultural institutions. The Conservancy was created with two initial goals: to support, enhance and activate the Lower East Side’s community of living synagogues and other historic structures, and to raise public awareness of the Lower East Side’s distinct cultural identity. The Conservancy offers customized private tours and innovative public walking tours of the Jewish Lower East Side. Customized private tours for schools and other educational organizations, synagogue and church groups, and corporate and family groups can be arranged.
