The East Village-Evolution in
From Peter Stuveysant’s “bouwerie” (meaning“farm” in Dutch), to the Lower East Side immigrants and the “Hippie” 60s and 70s to Alphabet City’s renowned restaurants -- the East Village has undergone tremendous changes over the decades.
The Gift of a “Real” NY Experience
As we wend our way through this ever-changing enclave you will experience many “offbeat” surprises- “the healthiest block in NYC”, “little Japan”, home of the Yiddish theatre that later was known for the famous punk rock scene, neighborhood gardens, the memorial to the Slocum Disaster and more.
Learn the history, eat the food, take a walk and have a great day!
Of course we will taste along the way. Tastes will include traditional fare and the newest trends as we sample savory treats, international fare and farm fresh goods. So bring your appetite and your walking shoes and join Susan for a ”real” NY experience!
