Return to the Jewish West Bronx: Walk Back in Time

November 10 , 10:30 am - 1:30 pm

Join the LESJC, and tour guide Susan Birnbaum for a walk on the “Boulevard of Dreams” – The Grand Concourse, to learn about the Jewish West Bronx.
The first Jewish settlement there was founded around 1840 by Germans and Hungarians who owned small shops or peddled their wares. By the 1880’s with the introduction of the 3rd and 9th Avenue EL-trains, more Jews settled in Morrisania, Kingsbridge, and West Farms. As the subways came uptown, more Bronx neighborhoods became Jewish enclaves. Synagogues and Yeshivas were founded, so of course food shops followed with bakeries, delis, bagel and appetizing stores.
The price of this tour includes the use of wireless headphones to better enable you to hear the guide.
