According to census data from the mid-19th-century, the Lower East Side had more Irish residents than Dublin. That may not be the case these days, but during this Big Onion tour, you can explore the areas that those immigrants called home. You’ll see the city’s first Catholic church, a monument to former New York State attorney general Thomas Addis Emmet, and the former Five Points neighborhood, where many Irish gangs held court in the 1800s.
