Meet inside the 1694 Quaker Meeting House, New York State’s oldest house of worship, for the tour introduction. This includes Flushing as the birthplace of religious freedom via the Flushing Remonstrance document and the movement to establish a National Park Monument site in the vicinity. From this location the group will walk on a route passing many newer large houses of worship that serve the multi-denominational immigrant community in Flushing and Queens. The tour will end close to the Main/Roosevelt terminus of the #7 train.
Guided by Queens Borough Historian: Dr. Jack Eichenbaum. This is a free tour but is limited to 30 people. You must register in advance by emailing Jack Eichenbaum firstname.lastname@example.org. He will confirm, hold you on a waiting list or advise of a sellout.
