A Jewish Tour of the Fort Lauderdale Riverfront Area
Join Mosaic for a walking tour of the historic downtown riverfront area. The first Jewish settlers arrived in Broward County in 1910 and were instrumental in contributing to the building of the city of Fort Lauderdale. The tour will focus on the architecture, history, and Jewish influence on the area. This event will start on Sunday, December 6, 2009, 10 a.m.
Meet in front of Tarpon Bend, 200 SW 2 St., on Himmarshee St., just west of Riverfront. Directions: Take I-95 to Broward Blvd, and go east to SW 5th Ave. Turn right on SW 5th Ave, or any of the next three right turns, and look for a parking lot or meter. Lots will be less expensive than the parking garages which can charge up to $12 per day.
Bring Water, sun screen, snacks for the walk if you want, and money for the pit stop. If you’re planning on staying for the Jazz Brunch bring a lawn chair or blanket, lunch including beverage and/or money for purchasing food from restaurant vendors. Don’t forget money for parking. Cost: $3 for Mosaic members, $8 for non-members Contact: No RSVP is necessary. For more info, call Debbie Premer at 954-274-1972 or email us at email@example.com
