Timeline Touring/ LoVer East Side Tours was founded by Jeffrey Altman. He is a graduate of the City's University System, a scion of New York City's legendary garment trade, and a life-long resident of New York's Jewish community.

Jeff wanted to share his pride for the Jewish neighborhoods of his hometown with others, but these communities are generally closed off to outsiders. Timeline Touring/ LoVer East Side Tours was established to open up this hitherto closed world to the outside. As Jeff says, “I want people to be able to experience the amazing area that I live in and near. It is filled with history, yet it breathes and is always changing. In New York City the Jewish People and Heritage are very much alive.”

Timeline Touring/ LoVer East Side Tours is for visitors and native New Yorkers who are not satisfied with the typical NYC tourist spots and want to gain access to the vast cultural expanse that is modern-day New York. On our tours, people step back in time as they visit a way of life which they assumed had all but disappeared.

interesting and informative

Attended: A Taste of Jewish New York
I (nonpracticing Jew) and my friend (Gentile, a woman photographer) enjoyed the tour very much, and learned a lot. Jeff has infectious enthusiasm - as well as his solid fund of knowledge - and I'd happily do another tour with him. Visiting the matzo bakery first is genius planning! We were instantly hooked. My friend got lots of good pictures.

Fascinating Cultural Tour
Sun, Dec 6, 15  9:45 AM Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Individual
Attended: A Taste of Jewish New York
This tour was a great experience that I'd highly recommend. I've lived in NYC for nearly two years and had never visited Borough Park; in fact, I wouldn't have known where to start when it comes to understanding the nuances of the local Hasidic community. Steve's tour was informative and entertaining, and I left feeling like I had a window into another culture. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a unique NYC experience that's much cooler than the typical Broadway/Empire State Building type of stuff.

A great tour where we learnt a lot about Hasidic life in Borough Park. We saw sites relating to worship & study, education, food preparation & sale. Our tour leader was well-informed & enthusiastically answered a variety of questions from our small group.
