Departing from a Lubavitcher niggun, this talk by Professor Tina Frühauf walks you to four corners of New York City and the Jewish musical cultures—past and present—of distinctive neighborhoods, from Lincoln Center and Broadway to Forest Hills in Queens, from Harlem in the north down to the Lower Eastside in the south of Manhattan.
