Ottoman New York: A Virtual Walking Tour of Lower Manhattan

Janes Walk

Led By Todd Fine AND Işıl Acehan, President, Washington Street Advocacy Group

The Ottoman government once had a significant presence in Lower Manhattan, beginning in the late 19th century. It had consulates in the area, and Ottoman subjects of many ethnicities lived in the Syrian Quarter, including Syrians, Palestinians, Greeks, Armenians, and Turks. In this virtual walking tour on Zoom, historians Işıl Acehan and Todd Fine will bring Ottoman New York back to life through stories of culture, religion, and politics.
