The Lower East Side Is a melting pot for immigrants for generations. Italian, Jewish, German, Latino and Asian immigrants have all called the Lower East Side home.
Numerous reminders of this legacy may be seen throughout the neighborhood, including churches, synagogues, social service organizations, labor memorials, and retail establishments. The Bowery in the west, the East River in the east, 14th St. in the north, and East Broadway in the south define the boundaries of the Lower East Side. The 2nd Ave station on the F train is the best choice for your in-person guided or virtual walking tour e to serve the Lower East Side Walking Tour by Allen Batista Travel.
Cover a lot more ground on foot
Keep in mind that all the major companies have stops in or near the borders of The Lower East Side if you intend to go around NYC using hop-on-hop-off buses. Allen Batista Travel can cover a lot more ground on foot than most other excursions during a 2.5 to 3-hour leisurely walk. The In Person and Virtual Lower East Side walking tour highlights include the following experiences-- Sunshine Theater, Red Square, Orchard Street, Russ and Daughters, Katz’s Deli, Movie and TV show sites, Angel Orshanz Center, Eastern Dispensary, Seward Park High School, Williamsburg Bridge, Delancey Street, Blue Building, Streit’s Matzoh Factory, Economy Candy, Yonah Schimmels Knish. We'll see churches, synagogues, and Buddhist temples. The new luxury condos that represent the neighborhood's gentrification, the housing constructed for the working class and poor, some of which still serves that purpose, and the new Essex Crossing development project, which is replacing, among other things, the historic Essex Street Market, which has returned in a new form, will all be visible.
Our in-person and virtual Lower East Side walking tour offers you a variety of amenities

The Lower East Side is by no means a cohesive area; it contains a variety of amenities catered both to long-time residents with less money and to recent arrivals with more.
Unleash the historic beauty
Waves of recent immigrants have lived in the Lower East Side for more than 200 years, fostering a fusion of cultures and inventiveness. However, the historic area is rapidly fading. In fact, the Lower East Side was listed as one of America's most endangered areas by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
