Culture & Cuisine: Dishing Up the East Village
Walking Tours Led by Dana Schulz
Join Village Preservation staff member Dana Schulz as she takes you on a journey through the East Village, peeling back the layers of the cultural gastronomy scene that have made this neighborhood so eclectic (and delicious!) over the years. Explore how immigrant groups established restaurants to serve their own community as well as share their heritage with the uninitiated. Learn the little-known facts that make these spots famous and infamous and discover how the emerging food scene of today reflects the changing culture of the neighborhood. Stops will include John’s of 12th Street, Moishe’s Bakery, and the Big Gay Ice Cream Shop. Food samples are NOT included, but you’ll surely have some good dining ideas! Second tour date 05/24/2012.
Jane Jacobs Walk is a program of the Center for the Living City, a nonprofit organization created by people who knew Jane Jacobs and were fortunate enough to call her a friend. The organization celebrates her life and legacy by helping people organize walks in their communities around the time of Jane’s birthday in early May.
