Hidden History of the Progressive East Village
A Walking Tour with Sheryl Woodruff
Join Village Preservation staff member Sheryl Woodruff as she leads a walking tour of the East Village, stopping at sites that reveal the neighborhood’s contributions to activism, reform, and social change. The walk will focus on some of the men and women who have consciously—and sometimes through chance—contributed to the neighborhood’s progressive history. We’ll explore both well-known contributors to our shared past and the contributions of those lost to the historical record. Stops will include, among others, Webster Hall, the First Street Community Garden, and the Sixth Street Community Synagogue.
We’ll be walking outdoors for 2 hours, so please wear weather-appropriate clothing and footwear, and it’s a good idea to bring a bottle of water with you.
