Historic German Buildings of the East Village
A walking tour with GVSHP’s Ted Mineau
The German immigrant community shaped what is now known as the East Village in many ways. In fact, in the late 19th and early 20th century, the area was known as “Kleine Deutschland” or Little Germany, and was one of the largest German-speaking communities in the world. Many manifestations of that era remain in the neighborhood, and fortunately, through the efforts of GVSHP and many others, many of those buildings are now landmarked and will remain for future generations to appreciate.
This two-hour walking tour will explore some of the places that served the German community in the 1800s. Most were designed by German-born immigrant architects and served a variety of functions, from entertainment, to education, to religion.
Space is extremely limited, as walking tour groups need to be kept to safe and manageable numbers. We will be on our feet the entire time, so please wear comfortable shoes and dress appropriately.
