Description

Enjoy the story of the millions of immigrants and taste several delicious dishes of the many groups that have lived there. We'll walk the narrow, tenement lined, streets of an area known by names like Kleindeutschland, Chinatown, and Losaida. Whether they were Dutch, Jewish, or Chinese we'll learn about and taste something from every group that has called the neighborhood home.

This New York City tour will start off at a location where many new citizens are made official - the City Hall. Here at the northern edge of the colonial city we'll start our journey with a wonderful breakfast treat of Belgian Waffles as we start our immigrant journey with the Dutch.

From there we'll make our way in a loop around the neighbourhood visiting 100 year old bakeries, churches, markets, and historic sites. We'll stroll the streets of little Italy just as Lucky Luciano might have a century ago. Marvel at former and still operating synagogues and Jewish clothing stores. We'll dive into latin culture at the Essex Street Market and take in cultural sites like the Lower East Side Tenement Museum, and the African Burial Ground. Finally we'll end up in the crowded and teaming streets of Chinatown where you'll swear you are in Shanghai.

Along the way we'll sink our teeth into amazing stories and amazing food. Knishes, Tacos, Dumplings and more. We'll taste why New York City is the center of the world and the culinary legacy left here by those that have passed by Lady Liberty on their way to the American Dream.
