The tour will be through the Lower East Side to the expat neighborhoods: Chinatown and La Picola Italia.
In the 19th century, in the midst of the Industrial Revolution, this area had a marginal population of diverse origins. Here, right here, ghettos were created for emigrants who came from distant lands to carve out a future. What they found was a city under construction, a state of chaos and without law or order. Everything was to be done, those people who did not even know how to read and write, much less speak the language, made their way in New York. They chose to meet in communities of people from their own country who, coincidentally, lived in the area of Manhattan with the cheapest rental housing. In groups, they were able to survive by living poorly.
The neighborhoods of Chinatown and La Piccola Italia; the famous Five Points fighting site; the restaurants that were the meeting place of the Chinese and Italian unions; the well-known Tenement, buildings where emigrants lived; the first Diamond District of German Jews; the old factories converted into underworlds where Irish and African-Americans coexisted in search of freedom, escaping from the slave camps of Virginia.
In the last part of the tour we will visit the SoHo neighborhood and end at St. Patrick's Basilica in the NoLiTa neighborhood.
What will we see during the tour?
- Fighting site Five Points.
- Famous restaurants, union meeting place .
- The Diamond District

Guides note: this is a free tour with high demand and very limited quotas. The itinerary of this tour goes through historic and residential neighborhoods, with narrow streets and little space, so the groups are small. If you do not find a reservation, it is because the quota is full and no more people are accepted for that outing. In case the reservation is made and you are not going to attend, we ask that you please make the cancellation so that another person can attend in your place. Thank you very much.
