Despite recent trendy changes and the news of upcoming development projects in the neighborhood, the Lower East Side has retained much of its turn-of-the-century character from when it was home to huge numbers of Jewish Eastern European immigrants that started their lives in the New World living in its cramped and often dangerous tenement buildings. In the midst of fashionable restaurants and boutiques, many historic places remain to help tell the story of Jewish American history in New York and beyond, like various synagogues, The Jewish Daily Forward Building, Jarmulowsky Bank, and also public bath houses, old traditional stores and of course, many specialty food places like Katz’s Deli, Russ and Daughters and Shapiro’s Wine factory. This is one of the liveliest neighborhoods of Manhattan and history truly does come alive on this tour with guide and art historian Sylvia Laudien-Meo just ahead of the start of Hanukkah. This tour includes a visit to the Streit’s Matzo for a brief factory visit.See more cheap New York City events & things to do on Nifty NYC.
