Tenements, Tastings, and Tales - A Tour of NY`s Lower East Side

This New York City tour will start off at a location where many new citizens are made official, City Hall.  Here at the northern edge of the colonial city well start our journey with a wonderful breakfast treat of Belgian Waffles as we start our immigrant journey with the Dutch.


From there well make our way in a loop around the neighborhood visiting 100 year old bakeries, churches, markets, and historic sites.  Well stroll the streets of little Italy just as Lucky Luciano might have a century ago.  Marvel at former and still operating synagogues and Jewish clothing stores.  Well dive into Latin culture at the Essex St. market and take in cultural sites like the Lower East Side Tenement Museum, and the African Burial Ground.  Finally well end up in the crowded and teaming streets of Chinatown where youll swear you are in Shanghai.


Along the way well sink our teeth into amazing stories and amazing food such as Knishes, tacos, dumplings, and more! Well taste why New York City is the center of the world and the culinary legacy left here by those that have passed by Lady Liberty on their way to the American Dream.
