Lower East Side Then & Now: Book Signing Thursday Night
The LES History Project’s Eric Ferrara and David Bellel are out with a new book. They’ll be signing copies of “Lower East Side Then & Now” and making a presentation tomorrow night at the Italian American Museum, 155 Mulberry Street, at 6:30 p.m. The book uses side by side images to compare the dramatic changes that have taken place in the neighborhood in the past century.
The new project also includes a forward by Joyce Mendelsohn, author of “The Lower East Side Remembered and Revisited.” There are dozens of rare photographs that have not been published before. Here’s a YouTube preview. Yes you can buy the book online, but better yet, patronize local businesses! The LES The & Now is available in the Tenement Museum Bookstore, 103 Orchard Street, and E. Rossi, 193 Grand Street.
