At the turn of the 20th century, more than half a million Jewish immigrants, from countries in Eastern Europe, lived on the Lower East Side. But just 20 years later, less than half that number still called the neighborhood home. What came after the Lower East Side for America’s Jewish immigrants? This five-part class begins with a focus on the iconic Jewish Lower East Side before following the migration of New York’s Jews – uptown and across the rivers. Most sessions will include walking; please wear comfortable shoes and dress appropriately for the weather.
