LESHP mentioned in Daily Mail article about new BBC TV show

Thanks to the UK's Daily Mail for mentioning LESHP in this article about a new BBC series called "Copper," which is set in NYC's Five Points in the 1860s.

From the article:
"The Lower East Side History Project today gives walking tours of wh
ere the area of 'Five Points' once stood.

The non-profit organisation is dedicated to documenting, researching and preserving the history of the Lower East Side - which encompasses several neighbourhoods and enclaves including the East Village, Little Italy, the Bowery and Chinatown.

Calling it 'one of the oldest, most historically significant and complex quarters in America,' it is today one of the most visited locales in Manhattan."

We are definitely looking forward to this series!
