The Ukrainian Dimension of the East Village
A Walking Tour with Terri Cook
See colorful reminders of immigrant groups who passed through the East Village, and today’s Ukrainian community thriving among trendy shops, college dorms and preserved spiritual havens. Join Terri Cook, author of Sacred Havens: A Guide to Manhattan’s Spiritual Places, to explore the neighborhood, visit some havens and celebrate at the annual Ukrainian Festival.
