The best way to see New York City is on foot, guided by knowledgeable and proud New Yorkers! While the Museum at Eldridge Street has been offering neighborhood walking tours for many years, we are excited to offer a series of freshly designed walking tours of the Lower East Side and beyond. Our expert guides are passionate about this city, and well-informed about local history, traditions, rumors, and fun facts. Stops will include restored synagogues, tenements, repurposed buildings, immigrant history and stories, and much more.
With public and private options, our walking tours will take you to amazing sites and landmarks, and cover what makes our neighborhood so special. Each of our guides is an experienced storyteller with historical knowledge and insider “secrets'' behind famous stops. Listening devices will enable you to hear your guide’s stories and explanations clearly. Tour lengths vary between 1 hour to 2 hours, depending on the type.
Whether you are planning your next family outing, a school trip, or a corporate event, we've got you covered!
