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.

Lucy and I have taken lots of walking tours with lots of various tour guides. Both of us agree that Jeff and Timeline Touring are absolutely the best, the most enjoyable, and the most educational tour we have ever taken. Jeff really is so enthusiastic about his work, it is easy to see he is having as much fun as his audience. Jeff knows everything about Borough Park Brooklyn that both Lucy and I learned a lot. This is truly a great way to spend a morning or afternoon. Thank you Jeff! We will be taking other tours you offer in the future.

Our leader was extremely knowledgeable about the area. We began at the hand made matzoh factory which was different from what I expected Our group was comprised of my husband and myself and 2 friends. No question was left unanswered along our walk. We discussed culture, education and religious beliefs of the people who lived in Borough Park I came away with a deeper appreciation

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.
