Testament to Time: Great Buildings on the Lower East Side

Hosted By: The Lower East Side Jewish Conservancy (LESJC)

Many Landmark worthy buildings dotted the Lower East Side during the iconic period of immigrant Jewish settlement. Many survived, but have been repurposed to meet contemporary needs and fashion as the neighborhood evolved -and still continues to change.

Join our architectural specialist, Urban Historian Barry Feldman, as he revisits several of these buildings: The Forward, Educational Alliance, Jarmulowsky Bank, Eldridge Street Synagogue, and others, for a discussion of the original mission of each building and how it compares to their current status.

This NEW walking tour lasts approximately 2 hours and has a fair amount of walking.
