Family History Today: Jews on the Upper East Side Walking Tour
Center for Jewish History
New York, NY
Share this event:


Jews have been a presence on the Upper East Side (UES) since the Gilded Age of the late 19th century, when the Guggenheims, Schiffs, and Warburgs built urban mansions along the Gold Coast of 5th Avenue. Set against the rich array of architecture, galleries, museums, and parks that distinguish the UES, this tour will explore the history of the neighborhoods Jewry, discussing patterns of settlement, prominent Jewish residents, and Jewish contributions to commerce and art. Visits to active synagogues, including the Manhattan Sephardic Congregation and Temple Emanu-El, will offer insights into the historic and continued diversity of Jewish life in the neighborhood.

About the Tour Guide: Barry Feldman is a licensed New York City tour guide and a senior docent and educator in residence at the Museum on Eldridge Street. While Barry lives on the UES, his interest in urban history, architecture, and Jewish ethnography take him to all neighborhoods of the city.
 
Location and other details: This tour will begin at the Manhattan Sephardic Congregation (325 East 75th Street). Please plan to arrive at 10:45 AM to check in. We will not wait more than a few minutes for late arrivals. This tour will take place rain or shine. Please dress modestly and bring water, hat/sunglasses, and sunscreen.  Note: Some tour stops are not wheelchair accessible.
