East Village "Kleindeutschland" Self-Guided Walking Tour

From the mid-19th through the early 20th century, the East Village was the center of what came to be known as Kleindeutschland, or Little Germany – the largest German-speaking community in the world outside of Berlin and Vienna. It contained countless houses of worship, social halls, labor and community organizations, charitable institutions, and eating and drinking establishments.  The 1904 General Slocum Ferry disaster, which killed over 1,000 largely German residents of the neighborhood, and the anti-German fervor of World War I, led to the community’s dissolution, but remnants of it can still be seen today in the East Village.
