Our Experts Recaps Uncover LES Tour Flyer

We’ve joined forces with two fantastic NYC Instagrammers – @CreateNYC and @HiddenGemofNYC – to host a meetup and explore the Lower East Side in Manhattan, and its history.

Why? Because of our constant curiosity “state of being”!

The Lower East Side neighborhood went from being a neighborhood known by the bohemian NYC society, to a place that lovingly sheltered European immigrants. Now, it’s transforming into a destination where people go scouting for great restaurants and bars.

To start, the project was designed to serve the community and market for those who are new or underserved in the neighborhood. Through the meetup, the group will explore interesting, hidden spots of LES. Guests will also meet the people who are making a difference to the community.

Moreover, we will walk around LES in a pre-determined route with 8 different businesses. They range from art galleries, graffiti spots, to coffee shops, restaurants and stores. Also, he business owners and artists of each place will talk about their experiences. In addition, they will also give all the participants gifts, as well as share their stories and knowledge of the neighborhood.

So, there is a symbolic fee of $25/person.

But note! All proceeds will be donated to two a local charity that are a part of the LES Community – The Bowery Mission and The Tenement Museum.

Come explore and tour the Lower East Side neighborhoods with us! Plus, keep your eyes opened for our future BTSNYC experiences. Also, check out our on going experiences, like the Bushwick Graffiti, Bites & Drinks Photo Tour.
