The Upper East Side’s Czechoslovak Heritage

Sunday, May 15 at 10:30AM

Until the 1940s, a portion of First Avenue was known as “Bohemian Broadway”, heart of the area that was home to tens of thousands of Bohemian, Moravian, and Slovak immigrants who started to settle on the Upper East Side in the late 19th Century. Join Joe Svehlak, tour guide and Czech-American, to hear about the Czech and Slovak immigrant experience, and see important remnants of this once vibrant community, including St. John Nepomucene Church, Jan Hus Presbyterian Church, Bohemian National Hall, and the gymnastic society’s Sokol Hall.
