Walking Tour: Historical Stroll through Tompkins Square Park

May 11 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm


Take this Spring’s coolest walking tour with Tompkins Square Library manager Corinne Neary and street photographer Michael Paul. The Lower East Side developed early into an area that housed new immigrant groups, many of which started their American life here. In the mid-19th century, the Tompkins Square offered reprieve from a hard life for our country’s new immigrants, in what was once the most densely populated neighborhood in America. Come to discuss the statues, memorials, landmarks, and trees that make up our park.

This free one hour tour meets in front of Tompkins Square Library.
