Tenement Talks - Lower East Side Stories

Tonight, join us for Lower East Side Stories: The Melting Pot, hosted by H.R. Britton. This event will be open-captioned in real time - a first for us - meaning no one should miss a word from our hilarious storytellers. Lower East Side Stories is also now brought to you by Brooklyn Brewery, which makes us very happy - what better way to enjoy a story than with a cold beer in hand?

Performers, including Michele Carlo and LES Stories curator H.R. Britton, share their tales of the city as melting pot – that "great conglomeration of men from every nation," as a 19th-century chantey put it. Still true today - Queens is “one of the most diverse places on Earth,” according to the Daily News, and the Lower East Side is a mix of people from Bangladesh, China, Puerto Rico and beyond. Following our storytellers, guests are invited to contribute their own three-minute story.
