The East Village and the Immigrant Experience

Janes Walk


Led By Steve Madeja

Welcome, you tired, you poor, you huddled masses yearning to breathe free, to the East Village! On this tour, we’ll explore the four centuries of immigrant history – Italian bakeries, Ukrainian butchers, Yiddish theaters, Dutch graveyards, German libraries, Irish pubs – and we’ll do it all in the space of six blocks.

This tour is very accessible, covering just six blocks over flat terrain. The start of the tour is accessible from the L at 1st Avenue, the M15 Bus at 1st and 11th, and the N/Q/R/W and 4/5/6 at Union Square.
