“East Village Walking Tour,” the perfect guide for people wanting to walk in to life of East Village!

East Village Walking Tour

East Village Walking Tour


There is no better way to get to know a neighborhood than by talking a walking tour with a qualified and experienced guide. The official walking tours of the East Village Visitor Center are offered by the Lower East Side History Project; an award winning non-profit organization dedicated to researching the history of the greater Lower East Side (which actually includes the East Village.) LESHP’s volunteer guides are native New Yorkers who are professional educators, researchers, authors, and active in the community — and the organization offers a variety of public tour topics to choose from. LESHP also caters tours for groups and individual private tours. Specifically interested in the Jewish History of the neighborhood? Then we recommend the Lower East Side Jewish Conservancy, which offers public and private tours on a regular basis.

This is a crash course in East Village/Lower East Side history. From the farmlands of the 1600s and the wealthy estates of the 1700s, to immigration, tenements, the “melting pot” and how the East Village became a haven for artists and counter culturalists in the twentieth century (and everything in between).

Despite recent gentrification, the East Village neighborhood of the Lower East Side, technically E.14th Street to E. Houston Street, still retains much of its radical character.

Every Saturday at 12:00pm

Reservations: Not Required, you can pay your guide

Fee: $20 General Admission

Location: in front of Bowery Poetry Club, 308 Bowery

Directions: F train to 2nd Ave or 6 train to Bleecker/Lafayette

Your guide: Andrea Coyle, Director of Outreach and Membership for LESHP, is a native New Yorker, a licensed New York City tour guide, a member of The Guides Association of New York City, and a graphic artist. She is a community activist and is passionate about preserving the fabric of New York City neighborhoods. Andrea was an early education preschool teacher, and she also volunteers for Big Apple Greeter
