Tour With Us

Private Group Tours



Explore the past and present of New York’s Lower East Side, the cradle of American Jewish immigration, and other historic NYC Jewish neighborhoods.


Since our inception in 1998, The Lower East Side Jewish Conservancy (LESJC) has offered a unique touring experience in one of New York’s most historically vibrant neighborhoods. Listed below are our popular walking tours. Keep in mind that these walking tours are only possibilities. Would your group like to see specific sites on the Lower East Side? We encourage potential visitors to speak with our staff. They will arrange tours for diverse groups: families, synagogues, schools, religious or women's organizations. They will help you design a tour to reflect the interests and needs of your group. On LESJC tours, landmarks of the Lower East Side are showcased.

Tours are led by LESJC guides who are professionally trained by author and historian Joyce Mendelsohn, a renowned expert on the history and culture of the Lower East Side. Tours last approximately 2.5 to 3 hours.

Experience the Lower East Side your way. Celebrate a special occasion and enjoy a memorable day in New York. For more information, call (212) 374-4100, ext. 1 or 2. LESJC conducts tours Sunday through Friday rain or shine!
