On February 2, the Lower East Side History Project (LESHP) is moving from its current location at the Bowery Poetry Club to Fourth Arts Block (FAB) at 61 East Fourth Street. The new visitors center, sponsored by LESHP, FAB, and the Cooper Square Committee (CSC), will be open Tuesday – Saturday, from noon to 6 pm.
According to Broadway World:
“It seemed natural to combine the East Village Visitors’ Center and FAB Central. Where better to host a visitor center but in the heart of the only Cultural District in Manhattan? Everyone wins. We get an opportunity to stimulate the local economy by directing visitors to East Village businesses, and visitors looking for entertainment have access to FAB’s incredible network of theater and arts groups.” says Eric Ferrara, executive director of LESHP. “When Eric came to us and suggested moving the visitors’ center in with our box office, we were really excited, because we can help even more people experience the best in East Village arts,” comments Tamara Greenfield, executive director of FAB.
“This neighborhood has such a rich history of activism and arts. Having the visitors’ center in our building only emphasizes the tie between the two,” mentions Steve Herrick, executive director of Cooper Square Committee, one of the oldest tenants rights and advocacy organizations in New York City.
