New York City's Lower East Side was once the most densely populated place on earth. It is an ever-changing neighborhood built upon waves of immigration. From the German and Irish to Eastern European and Jewish immigrants to the expanding borders of Chinatown today, the Lower East Side continues to transform before our eyes.
The tour begin at Straus Square on the corner of East Broadway and Essex streets.
