Tenement Museum - Under One Roof Tour
Our brand new exhibit features the stories of the immigrants and migrants who started their lives anew at 103 Orchard Street in the decades after World War II and helped to make the Lower East Side one of New York's most diverse neighborhoods. Hear the stories of former resident Bella Epstein, whose parents survived the Holocaust; Jose and Andy Velez, whose seamstress mother left Puerto Rico for new opportunities; and the Wong siblings, whose mother supported the family by sewing in the Chinatown garment shops. A Deaf educator will lead the tour, with no spoken English translation. The tour will be an hour and a half long, followed by a reception featuring local Lower East Side foods.
