October 23 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

This four-part course, which combines two classroom sessions with two Lower East Side walking tours, examines the creative ways the Lower East Side immigrant community responded to the area's overcrowding, oppressive heat and cold, and poor ventilation.  Residents took to the streets as fire escapes became bedrooms, stoops doubled as living rooms, storefronts became social halls, and streets like Hester and Orchard Street presaged contemporary shopping malls.

October 22 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

What was it like to be a kid growing up on the Lower East Side in the early 20th century? Find out as we follow in the footsteps of Ella, Henny, Sarah, Charlotte, and Gertie, the beloved sisters depicted in Sydney Taylor's children's classic All-of- a-Kind Family.  Stroll through the story and onto the streets as we visit the spots where the children played, prayed, and purchased their pickles and candy.

October 19 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Bring your questions and opinions as we explore a variety of Jewish texts and issues-often related to the weekly Torah portion or its accompanying reading from the Prophets, but sometimes a Biblical or Rabbinic text that raises questions of contemporary interest. Knowledge of Hebrew and previous Torah study are not required.

A Deal
Nov 15 to Dec 10, 2017
By Zhu Yi | Directed by John Giampietro

A DEAL is a dark comedy that features a Chinese family's home buying journey in New York in winter 2015, a time of increased real estate property ownership by overseas Chinese and a sharp decline in the value of the RMB against the US dollar. It reveals the ideological conflicts between the East and the West in contemporary society by tracking a little stream of the global cash flow.

Welcome to "The Story We Share," a series of Q&As that profile two people with similar identities  but who live in very different places. As part of HuffPost's Listen To America tour, we're exploring how people's lived experiences overlap and diverge depending on their zip codes. What is the "American Experience"? It depends where you look. 


Giants steps I was born in 1960 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. My parents were from China but met at university in Taiwan and got married before emigrating to the United States. I have two sisters, one older, one younger.
I was eight years old when I saw the Apollo moon landing in 1969. I was riveted. We watched it all afternoon; it was so amazing to go out, look up and realise that, almost a quarter of a million miles away, two astronauts were getting ready to take their first steps on the moon. I've always been interested in space rockets and airplanes, but that's where the dream started.

Ai Weiwei is many things - a restless artist in all media, China's most prominent dissident, and a compulsive Instagrammer - but he's a New Yorker, too.
He lived here for a decade back in the 1980s and early 1990s. You can tell by the way he casually jaywalks through Greenwich Village without needing to reallylook at the traffic.

The son of one of New York's legendary Chinese restaurants has something to prove. After Hwa Yuan closed years ago and seminal Chinese restaurateur Shorty Tang died, his son Chen Lieh Tang, now 65, will reopen the restaurant on Thursday in the very same location. The sprawling space at 42 East Broadway has three floors, with more than 160 seats that Tang wants to fill with young people, dignitaries, and more - just like the old Hwa Yuan did.

A favorite noodle destination of mine for over a decade, Sheng Wang in Chinatown has undergone a name change to Hong Man - an evolution of the hand-pulled noodle shop to include the original's extensive soup menu, with the addition of Fujianese classics and seafood.

HWA YUAN SZECHUAN Chen Lieh Tang is back to opening restaurants. His father, Yun Fa Tang, known as Shorty, arrived in New York in 1963 and introduced Sichuan food and notably sesame noodles. Chen Lien Tang put the family name on many restaurants before retiring to spend time in China, New York and Taiwan. But he recently became bored. "He's getting old, and he felt the need to do it again, one last time," said his son, James Tang, who is also involved in the business. Last spring, the family opened Shorty Tang Noodles in Chelsea.
