•St. Patrick’s Weekend Irish New York
Come celebrate St. Patrick’s Day – the patron saint of New York City – in the 19th century Irish neighborhood.
A special tour for St. Patrick’s Weekend. Explore the former “Little Ireland” district of the Lower East Side, between City Hall and Houston Street as we examine the tremendous role of Irish immigrants in the history of New York City. This “family friendly” tour will explain why St. Patrick’s Day is more popular here than in Ireland. Stops could include: the founding site of the Ancient Order of Hibernians, Al Smith’s home, the Five Points, the first Catholic church in the city, and sites associated with Tammany Hall, Thomas Addis Emmet, and many others.
