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.

Enjoyable. Guide- Jeff- well prepared and easy to understand. Some interesting highlights about what was and what it has become. Synagogue visit was very interesting. Would like to see more interiors although suspect not possible- help better understand the living conditions. Stopping at some of the former factories might also be a good thing although many of those probably no longer exist.

Guide well informed about history of neighborhood and the various Jewish groups populating it. Open to questions and willing to deal with topics that could be controversial. Able to demonstrate points with stops at appropriate sites. Conveys well own genuine interest in the neighborhood and sympathies for inhabitants.
