Once the most densely populated district in the world, the Lower East Side of Manhattan has witnessed a myriad of changes over the past century. Join Untapped New York Insider and long-time Lower East Side resident Richard Soden for a virtual tour that will explore the evolution of this New York City neighborhood. The tour will offer a look at the remaining vestiges of the Lower East Side’s past including many surviving and lost structures connected to the area’s history of Jewish immigration.
Rivington Street Synagogue
On this virtual tour, Soden will highlight historic buildings and structures that have been restored or re-purposed, as well as those that have demolished, or abandoned. Stops will include stunning historic synagogues that still serve their original purpose, as well as those that have been converted to other functions such as art galleries, churches, and event spaces as well as bathhouses, restaurants, movie theaters, and much more.
This live virtual event on Friday, December 11th, is organized for Untapped New York Insiders. Not an Insider yet? Become a member today and get two months free with code JOINUS.
