What better way to enjoy a neighborhood tour of the Lower East Side than to take bite out of it as well -- YUM!! We'll explore sites associated with the tribulations and triumphs of the Jewish immigrant, including the Eldridge Street Synagogue, the Eddie Cantor birthplace, the home of Ira Gershwin, The Jewish Daily Forward Building, the Jarmalofsky Bank, and Orchard Street. We'll also stop for noshing or shopping for bialys and bagels, sour pickles, Economy Candy, and end at Yonah Schimmel's Knishery. After the tour is over, consider a trip to Katz's Deli only steps away. 

Please note the cost is just for the tour itself. Cost for food tasting portion is additional and out of pocket on the day of the tour.
