An art walk & food tour exclusive on the Lower East Side NYC October 25th 2020
Spend the afternoon of Sunday October 25th delighting all five of your senses during a personalized art & food walk with Women of Culture Founder, Alexandra Harper and Warrior Women in Business Founder, Jasmine Sandler. Get a chance to get out, learn and socialize in a COVID-Friendly limited engagement.
We will take in the unique sights, smells, sounds, and tastes that make the Lower East Side such a rich and amazing neighborhood, with a focus on female-owned & run businesses. We will discuss the ever-changing history of this neighborhood and experience first-hand how it is representative of the true essence of the city as a whole.
We will visit 6-7 unique spots that you would likely miss if exploring the areas on your own, including 2-3 off-the-beaten-path galleries, where the Gallerists and/or Artists themselves will speak to us about the work on view. We will also learn about the local street art as we pass by a few favorite food purveyors, where delicacies can be purchased for an additional cost.
This is a great opportunity to take a deep dive into some of NYC’s most beautiful and fascinating neighborhoods, learn about the history and meet new friends along the way. You will also have the chance to join for group drinks at a local hot-spot at the end of the tour (not included in trip price). The route and galleries featured on the walk are different every time, so each walk is new even for those who have attended in the past.
(Note: Due to current health concerns, the group will be limited to 8 people, and all attendees will be required to wear masks.)

More about the neighborhood:
The area nestled between Houston and Canal St on the north and south and the Bowery and the East River on the east and west is one of the most vibrant in the city. Influenced by the many diverse ethnic groups and immigrants who have made NYC their home, it feels like a microcosm of what NYC is all about — a melting pot of cultures, entrepreneurship and creativity. There is always something new to discover here, and this tour is all about taking the time to notice the richness and beauty that comes with this diversity.
