Free Lower East Side Food Tours
Meet outside Yohah Schimmel’s (137 E. Houston St., Manhattan)
Free, tips appreciated
The streets of the Lower East Side tell the tales of struggling immigrants – Eastern Europenas, Russians, Germans, Puerto Ricans – who came to America in search of opportunity. They brought with them recipes from the ‘old world’ and you can still taste these foods today. Ever eat a potato knish? How about a bialy or pletzel? Care to try a green tea doughnut? Not in the mood for something exotic – no worries – we’ll grab some of the best Chinese dumplings in New York City and we will pick up some pickles along the way.
