Roslyn, Herricks and East Williston Adult Education are offering a fascinating course, Armchair Tour: Ethnic New York, on the evening of Thursday, Dec. 11.

Susan Zuckerman will take attendees on a tour of the many sites in New York City that trace the history of the Italians, Jews, Chinese and other ethnic groups that have given the city and surrounding area its unique character.

From Ellis Island where many of the area residents’ forebears disembarked upon arriving in America, to the neighborhoods of the Lower East Side, Chinatown, Little Italy and others where new immigrants lived, this tour of New York’s ethnic history will span centuries and large areas of the city, all from the comfort of an Adult Education classroom. This will be an entertaining evening of history and anecdotes told in words and pictures.
