“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

Thursday Night Latin Jazz Jam with Chembo Corniel, Grammy Award nominee, at Nuyorican Poets Cafe in East Village.

Chembo Corniel plays at Nuyorican Poets Cafe o Thursday, October 6, 2011, at 9pm!

236 East 3rd Street (Bet. Avenue B & C) New York, NY 10003 T.212-780-9386

2009 GRAMMY NOMINEE Percussionist Wilson “Chembo” Corniel was born in Manhattan on November 22, 1953 of proud Puerto Rican parents and raised in the humble streets of Red Hook, Brooklyn. It was during these years as a quick-witted youngster that he had the privilege and honor to study with such luminaries of the Afro-Caribbean percussion tradition as,Tommy Lopez Sr., “Little Ray” Romero, Louie Bauzo, and Cachete Maldonado.

Chembo honed his skills at The Harbor Conservatory for the Performing Arts in New York and at the prestigious La Escuela Nacional de Arte in Havana, Cuba under the direction of the great Chucho Valdés. His intense studies with such legends noted above channeled his energy onto a path where Wilson “Chembo” Corniel has now created a reputation for himself among musicians and the public. Today, he is considered as one of the best hard-hitting, versatile percussionists around.  Chembo teaches percussion to students at the SUNY Purchase Conservatory of Music and leads numerous clinics throughout the United States, bringing awareness of the rich Afro-Caribbean traditions to others.  Among his credits, Chembo was chosen by Latin Percussion to create his own instructional DVD entitled  An Introduction to Hand Percussion: Volume I – Congas.  This DVD was released in December of 2000 with distribution by Warner Brothers and has been a success.  He’s been a vital endorser of Latin Percussion instruments since 1982 as he is currently for Remo drum heads, Vic Firth sticks and Sabian cymbals.  His touring credits are as long as his performing credits.  Chembo has toured with many major artists throughout Europe, Asia, North & South America, and the Caribbean.  Television credits include an appearance on the “Bill Cosby Show” and a recurring recording gig on Nickelodeon’s children show, “Dora the Explorer”.  Chembo continues to perform and/or record with many artists of different genres. He is currently concentrating on leading his own Latin Jazz quintet, “Chembo & Grupo Chaworó”.  Chembo received a GRAMMY NOMINATION by NARAS IN 2009 for “BEST LATIN JAZZ ALBUM” for his 2009 CD release entitled Things I Wanted To Do. This is a well-balanced Latin Jazz group that incorporates many rich traditions, such as writer Aurora Flores states:  a sprinkling of be-bop, a touch of swing with a dollop of bomba, rumba, tango and danzón topped with ‘un chin’ de charanga.

La MaMa 50 World Block Party on Fourth Arts Block, East Village, on October 16, 2011, Sunday from 2-6pm.



La MaMa 50 World Block Party!

October 16th, 2011, Sunday, from 2-6pm

Join us on East 4th Street between Bowery and 2nd Avenue for tours of La MaMa’s Archive and theatres, as well as family-friendly performances by Blue Man Group, The Silver Cloud Native American Drummers and Singers, Pua Ali’i ‘Ilima o Nuioka Hula Dancers, and the Balkan gypsy punk rock band, Bad Buka.
During the afternoon visitors will also be able to take tours of the La MaMa Archive, Ellen Stewart’s private collection documenting the history of the Off-Off Broadway movement. Registration for the tours will take place prior to the event.

At the conclusion of the block party, city officials will co-name the block “Ellen Stewart Way,” at which time all the church, mosque, and temple bells, and bells all over the neighborhood and the world will ring in a salute to Ms. Stewart — or “MaMa,” as she was affectionately known by artists and audiences alike — who regularly marked the start of performances at La MaMa by ringing a hand bell before welcoming theatre goers.

La MaMa 50 Gala will take a place on October 17, 2011, from 6-10pm including dinner, dancing and performances by alumni artists, Patti Smith, Bill Irwin and more. The tickets tier from $250 – $250,000. More  information, click here.
