Little Syria, NY: An Immigrant Community's Life and Legacy, captures the history of a prominent Arab community that made its home in lower Manhattan at the turn of the century.
Although razed to make way for the Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel and later the World Trade Center, the impact of this community resonates in the current Arab American community of New York and the dozens of similar communities nationwide. This exhibition documents the life of this community, recognizing Little Syria’s contribution to the city of New York, its connections to the Arab World, and its legacy across the United States.
The exhibit, at the 3LD Art & Technology Center, 80 Greenwich St., runs daily through May 27, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Entry is free.
