As it Was: A Virtual Tour of the Lower East Side
August 24 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
The history of the Lower East Side over the last century is one of constant change and transformation. From 1880 to the present, the Lower East Side saw unparalleled growth, waves of immigrants flooding its streets, and the rise of the first public parks and libraries in the area. This virtual tour of the Lower East Side will take you through multiple phases of the neighborhood’s history and the ways its residents worshiped, played, studied, and fought for their place in a new land. Explore how the neighborhood has changed, and how the Museum at Eldridge Street and Seward Park Library, which continue to serve residents after almost 150 years, have changed with it.
