Take the kids on a trip to the literary Lower East Side!

Join us on Sunday, July 28 at 10:30am ET and 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 into the streets to learn about the real-life people and Lower East Side places that inspired Taylor to write All-of-a-Kind Family. These behind-the-scenes details are guaranteed to make you love the book even more! Recommended for children five and up and their adult companions.

Highlights:

  • Visit the Main Sanctuary of the Eldridge Street Synagogue, a house of worship where the All-of-a-Kind characters may have attended
  • See the Allen Street tenements and discuss how the sisters lived
  • Visit Hester and Orchard Streets where the characters shopped from pushcarts and peddlers
  • Walk through Seward Park and see where the girls used to play
  • Pass by Seward Park Library where the sisters borrowed their books
  • Stop by The Pickle Guys and sample one of the sisters’ favorite foods
