Tonight will be our last spent on East 24th Street; tomorrow will be our first spent on East Broadway. (As I pointed out earlier, pronounced East Broadway, accent on the second syllable, by most natives of New York that I've heard.) Downtown: more Cantonese, more Yiddish, still within striking distance of our shul. A return to the Lower East Side, a neighborhood our families (probably) didn't come over to and one we don't feel any nostalgia for. But we're sure looking forward to getting to know it.
