Take a walk through two centuries of history on the Lower East Side next weekend, and support a non-profit program preserve and share the neighborhood’s religious, social and architectural contributions to NYC, and beyond.
O! Multitudes!: Three Centuries of Domestic Architecture on the Lower East Side explores that and more. You’ll learn how to distinguish a tenement from a row house and see examples of pre-law, old law and new law tenements. Tour-goers will be surprised by the rear tenement double-deckers that remain from 1867 pre-law housing legislation. New architecture will be contrasted to sites visited.
The tour is Sunday, November 8th, 10:45am to 1:45pm. It is sponsored by The Lower East Side Jewish Conservancy, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to preserving, sharing and celebrating the Jewish heritage of the Lower East Side. The Conservancy aims to raise public awareness of the Lower East Side’s distinct cultural identity through innovative public walking tours and other programs, while supporting the neighborhood’s community of living synagogues and other historic structures
