East Village
The Black Cube at Astor Place

Explore the area made famous by radicals and immigrants alike, the East Village is the lesser-known side of Broadway between Houston & 14th Streets. Our tour combines the history of German, Ukrainian, and Jewish immigrants with the long neighborhood legacy of labor activism. We also explore the evolution of local theaters from the Yiddish stages of the early 20th century to becoming the epicenter of the 1970s counter-culture music scene! Stops could include: the Fillmore East, St. Mark’s Church-in-the-Bowery, the historic Marble Cemetery, the Public Theater, and sites associated with Peter Cooper, Dorothy Day, Peter Stuyvesant, Sophie Tucker, and the General Slocum disaster of 1904.
