April 1, 2019-Earlier today Comedian and host, Joe Pontillo sat down at the Blue Moon Hotel location of Davidovich Bagels, with Eric Ferrara, author and founder of the Lower East Side Historical Project.

In addition to bagels they discussed the Project’s work in providing tours and preserving historic facts and information about the essential character of NYC.  From Mafia Tours to tours about little know facts about NYC, it seems Mr. Ferrara is a great resource for information about NYC.

In addition to being the founder of the Project Mr. Ferrara is the author of seven (7) books, his most famous, Revolt; all of which can be found on Amazon.com and everywhere books are sold.
