New! Hungarian & German Yorkville

With James Russiello

[In-person Tour] Follow Hungarian and German patterns of migration in the East 80s of the Upper East Side on this walking tour with historian James Russiello. Tenements and ethnic missions sprang up from what were once bucolic farmland retreats of Old New York as the neighborhood became an enclave for many immigrant groups in the late 19th and early 20th centuries (including Irish, Germans, Hungarians, and Czechs) leaving the neighborhood rich in cultural heritage. By the 1930s, East End Avenue was among the toniest of apartment districts designed by high society architects. Stroll through a constantly developing neighborhood to view patterns of development.

MAS in-person tours take place outdoors, therefore masks are not required. If you prefer to wear a mask, though, we want you to feel comfortable doing so.
