The Undiscovered Lower East Side with Local Author Bruce Northam

Operated By: Urban Adventures New York City

Activity Description

After visiting 150 countries, veteran travel writer and author Bruce Thoreau Northam rediscovers his historic and overlooked corner of New York City's Lower East Side below Delancey Street. His new, one-of-a-kind walking tour is a two-hour odyssey that mingles offbeat locales, history, untouristed establishments, fun facts, and tales of NYC and beyond. This unconventional excursion transitions through several wildly different worlds, and the route and content have nearly zero crossover with any other tour—it goes behind the scenes of NYC's uncharted "lower" Lower East Side. Chances are you won't see any tourists until the tour's finale.

The Undiscovered Lower East Side with Local Author Bruce Northam Highlights

  • A peek inside a historic church and an old-timey saloon
  • Un-touristed ultra-Kosher businesses
  • Off-the-radar parks, streets, eateries, and ideas
  • Strolling the backbone of a now trendy neighborhood, the "Lower" Lower East Side ($7 ice cream cones?) that resembled a ghost town 15 years ago
  • Beholding one of the city's oldest housing projects (and its requisite, authentic bodega) and the grand architectural landmarks of centuries past that survived the bulldozer


"Bruce Northam is what you might call well-traveled." —CNBC
