East Village Historic District Tour: A Walking Tour with Elizabeth Finkelstein

Join historian (and former GVSHP staffer) Elizabeth Finkelstein for a morning walk through and around the East Village/Lower East Side Historic District. The buildings contained within this newly-designated district represent several important eras in East Village history, illustrating its growth from an elite residential neighborhood, to an immigrant melting pot, to a world-renowned Yiddish entertainment district, to a post-war mecca for alternative culture. We’ll stroll the neighborhood’s lively streets, home to a colorful mosaic of small businesses and historic architecture that help make the East Village New York’s most blogged-about neighborhood. We’ll also spend some time exploring the undesignated sections of the neighborhood and discussing some of the preservation issues currently making news in the East Village.
