East Side Stories
May 16 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm$15.00 - $20.00
We’re breaking away from our landmark building for these special Saturday tours led by museum docent Richard Soden! You’ll stroll through the neighborhood as Soden weaves 100-year-old history with the street smarts he’s earned as a long-time Lower East Side resident. Learn about what life was like for Jewish immigrants at the turn of the last century, where children played, where people shopped and ate, how they received news, and even where they banked. You’ll also explore more recent history, including how the neighborhood has been transformed and adapted to new trends and cultures in the 21st century.
