      EVENT DETAILS
      Five Points/Chinatown/Little Italy walking tour

      The "Five Points/Chinatown/Little Italy" walking tour goes off the beaten path, exploring districts and aspects of our neighborhood most excursions overlook. Sure, we'll discuss the tenements and immigrant experience in detail, but we'll go beyond the familiar narrative and cover a thousand years of important history; from Native Americans to modern-day gentrification.

      Utilizing generations of insight, rare maps, photos, documents, articles and oral histories not found elsewhere, LESHP digs deep into the neighborhood's forgotten history.

      Visited on tour:
      The notorious Five Points, former Irish and African enclave
      Former Italian immigrant/tenement districts
      Chinatown
      Historic churches, theaters, restaurants, shops
      Popular landmarks and sites of interest

      Discussed on tour:
      Truth about the movie, "Gangs of New York"
      How the neighborhood evolved into a renown tenement district
      Various ethnic populations and influences
      Tenement life
      Changes presently affecting the Lower East Side
      And much more!

      Schedule:
      Every Saturday at 2:00PM
      $20pp. RSVP REQUIRED

      Cost: Payment required - 20.00
