Join the Museum at Eldridge Street for a special virtual walking tour exploring historic sites around the Lower East Side where love once blossomed!

How did people meet and mingle 100 years ago? Did they confess their love in letters? Go to a matchmaker? Meet at work on a factory floor? As immigrants wrestled with new American ways and their old traditions, the Lower East Side was home to family-arranged marriages as well as young people mixing freely at dance halls and making their own matches. We’ll virtually visit sites where love once blossomed, including the former site of a popular dance hall, Seward Park and Seward Park Library, as well as bustling streets, stoops and shops. You’ll also hear accounts from 19th- and early 20th-century novels, newspapers and a Yiddish love-letter writing manual that draw a vivid portrait of turn-of-the-20th century wooing, love and marriage.
