Immigrant Heritage Day East Village Walking Tour with the Urban Archive App

On April 17, 1907, more immigrants entered the U.S. through Ellis Island than any other day in history. Now, April 17 kicks off NYC’s Immigrant Heritage Week. In celebration of this day and the many ethnic immigrant groups that have come to the Village over the years, we will walk in our immigrant forbearers’ footsteps and see what they saw, as only the Urban Archive App allows us to do. With the app as our guide, we will explore sites including the old Yiddish theater, immigrant houses of worship, Little Germany, and more, and we’ll meet business owners whose paths to the Village created the landscape we see today.
