View of the 1014 Building from the exterior.

Jews have been a presence on the Upper East Side (UES) since the Gilded Age of the late 19th century, when the Guggenheims, Schiffs, and Warburgs built urban mansions along the “Gold Coast” of 5th Avenue. After the Slocum Disaster of 1904, the German community of the Lower East Side, including many Jews, also moved to nearby Yorkville. Tour guide Elissa Sampson will lead an exploration of the architectural, cultural, and historical highlights linked to Jewish life in these remarkable neighborhoods, including mysteries and secrets along the way. Elissa Sampson, Visiting Scholar in Cornell's Jewish Studies program, is an urban geographer who studies how the past is actively used to create new spaces of migration, memory, heritage and activism. Her life-long interest in Jewish migration, re-diasporization and culture had been pursued in the Lower East Side, Brooklyn, Jerusalem, London and Paris prior to realizing Ithaca’s centrality to that map. Accessibility Statement: 1014 continues its efforts to constantly improve the accessibility of its site and services in the belief that it is our collective moral obligation to allow seamless, accessible and unhindered use also for those of us with disabilities. However, due to technical limitations at 1014 5th Avenue, the second floor of the building is not wheelchair accessible, as there is no functional elevator on-site. Only the first floor of the building will enable wheelchair access. COVID Protocols For everyone’s health and safety, proof of COVID-19 vaccination (age 12+) -- either in digital or hard-copy form -- and masks (age 2+) are required for all visitors to 1014 5th Avenue. Hand sanitizer will be offered upon arrival. 1014: Past and Future comprises a weekend of architecture, culture and community. The program will feature an exhibition and talks at 1014 5th Avenue and guided walking tours in the Upper East Side neighborhood.
