Run, don’t walk, to reserve tickets

In conjunction with its Catholics in New York exhibition, the Museum of the City of New York is conducting a walking tour of the Catholic Lower East Side. Thursday afternoon’s tour is already sold out, but as of this writing you can still get tickets to the tour at 11 am Saturday, July 26. It’s $9, quite a reasonable price for a walking tour, and here’s how they describe it:

Join us for a walk through the Lower East Side and discover New York through the eyes of an early Catholic immigrant. Highlights include architecturally distinguished churches and chapels, including the “Sacré Coeur of the Lower East Side”—the Church of the Most Holy Redeemer—and the original St. Patrick’s Cathedral, designed by Joseph Mangin of City Hall fame. The tour will stop at a former Catholic orphanage and Al Smith’s school and church.

You can order tickets online through the link above, or call (212) 534-1672, ext. 3395.
